Spanish useful phrases



Note: For words ending in a vowel or the letters n or s, stress is on the penultimate (next to last) syllable. Words ending in other consonants, especially verbs, are stressed on the last syllable. Exceptions require a written accent. The th [?] pronunciation is typical of standard Spanish as spoken in most of Spain, and is replaced by the s pronunciation in Latin America and some regions of Spain, such as the Canary Islands.

It is also important to highlight the difficulty of pronouncing and conjugating Spanish verbs correctly, especially irregular verbs. A clear example is the ir conjugation , one of the most complicated irregular verbs to learn in Spanish language.
