Hola (Hi) y (and) Welcome

Here are some things you will learn in Spanish 1A

First you will learn the sounds of the vowels:

a sounds like "ah" as in "mama."
e sounds like "eh" as in "pet."
i sounds like "ee" as in "see."
o sounds like "o" as in "no."
u sounds like "oo" as in "too"


We will also need to add these special letters:

h (no sound/silent) as in "hola, hotel"
j sounds like an "h" as in "José, jalapeño"
ll sounds like the "y" in "yes, yellow (llama, llamo)"
que / qué sounds like "k" (Qué día es hoy) - What day is today?


WE WILL PRACTICE THE NUMBERS, AND THEN WE WILL LEARN:
