2 Spanish vowels
In Spanish there are only five vowel sounds: a, e, i, o, u. These vowels are pronounced with a steady sound of similar length and quality whatever their position in the word. So whether the vowel is at the start, in the middle or at the end of the word – and even when two vowels appear together in a word – each vowel retains its own sound; for example, the sound of the letter ‘o’ is the same in Olga, Curro and Asunción.
Activity _unit2.3.1 Activity 2
Listen and repeat the five vowel sounds (a, e, i, o, u) and the Spanish names that you hear. Record yourself as you do this and then listen back to your recording and compare it to the models. You can record yourself as many times as you wish by pressing ‘Re-record’ or ‘Start again’; your last recording will be saved.
