How do Spaniards pronounce yo?
However, this is not the case in most of Latin America pronounced that’s the way it is pronounced with a “j” sound, e.g. B. “you” (means “I” in Spanish) is pronounced “joe”, and the same applies to the double L: “ll”, as in “llegar”, which want be pronounced as “yay-gar” in Spain but “Jay-Gar” in most of Latin America.
Is LL pronounced J or Y?
pronunciation 1: LL Sounds like the English letter ‘Y‘
Just like you learned in your beginner course or textbook, ll mostly sounds like the English letter ‘j‘ as in the words ‘yellow’ and ‘yes’. This is the way ll is pronounced in Spain, parts of Mexico and most of Central and South America.
Is it Jo or Yo?
yes it varies “yeah‘ is not uncommon, and ‘Zho’ is not uncommon either. yeah (half of the English word “yeahyou‘) can also be heard. If you listen, you’ll hear different speakers use subtle variations that sound somewhere in between.
