How many letters are in the Spanish Alphabet?
The Spanish alphabet consists of 27 letters, that’s one more letter than in the English alphabet, thanks to the ñ.
Now you might be wondering, “what about ch, and ll, I definitely learned those in Spanish 101?”
Well, yes, you might have, but the Real Academia Española declared that ch and ll are no longer part of the Spanish alphabet because in all reality, they are actually digraphs, two letters that combine together to correspond to one sound.
Therefore, the contemporary Spanish alphabet consists of 27 letters.

Ways to Learn the ABCs in Spanish
There are so many great ways and resources to learn the ABCs and these ABC flashcards in Spanish will be here to help.
Below are a list of ways to learn the ABCs in Spanish.
Learn the ABCs in Spanish through play
Children learn best through play especially when it comes to retaining language!
We try to keep it fun and playful at home when working on anything as complicated as the alphabet. So to begin learning about letters, we have done fun activities such as salt letter writing trays, and sensory slime to construct letters.
I also have a few printable games coming out that with which you will be able to use your FREE alphabet flashcards in Spanish, so stay tuned!
Learn the ABCs in Spanish through books
Books are my next best resource when using our minority language at home. Raising my son in my nonnative language can present difficulties sometimes as my Spanish vocabulary is not as extensive as my English vocabulary. However, through books, I can teach my son new vocabulary while learning new words myself!
Last week, I published a post on 23 ABC books in Spanish for preschoolers. I own some of these myself, and I highly recommend El abecedario de emociones. This book is more directed at older preschoolers, but even younger and older children will enjoy it. For each Spanish letter in the alphabet, the book offers an emotion, and along with that emotion, it includes a beautiful poem.
We have been working through one letter each night, but let me tell you, I find myself learning so much Spanish too!
Learn the ABCs in Spanish through my FREE ABC worksheets for preschoolers
