Producing English consonant sounds is not as problematic for many Spanish learners as vowels, but can still be quite a challenge. Problems may arise in the following ways:
It has often been noted that the use of certain consonants in a particular word makes it sound like a vowel when spoken by Spanish speakers. This creates confusion in pronouncing a consonant, as it gets linked with a vowel. Another issue that can arist is when pronouncing two consecutive words with the first ending with a consonant and the second starting with vowel the consonant is pronounced at the beginning of the second word. For example, when writing the words are written as “turn off” but when speaking the two consecutive words it is generally pronounced as “tur noff”.
With the major role that consonants play in order to make speech easier to understand, itis necessary to use the consonants properly.
