Dear Mexican: What is it about the many gringos/gabachos who constantly slaughter Spanish words? Spanish is easy to pronounce (and spell) compared to English. The vowels (a, e, i, o, u) are always pronounced the same way. In English, vowels vary a lot — difficult for new learners. In Spanish, all the other alphabet letters are pronounced the same way, except for a few, such as "J" (guttural-sounding) and "X" (like the aspired "J"). But "H" is always silent, "Y" is like "I", and double "ll" is pronounced "yah."
