Pronunciation of the letter G in Spanish
Spanish is a phonetic-based language, meaning that each letter produces one specific sound.
Nevertheless, there are some nuances in pronouncing the letter G according to the letters that come after the G.
There are two different ways of pronouncing the G as well as some additional rules. Below is a cheat sheet with examples of how to pronounce the letter G. This cheat sheet will come available in print out form with the rest of this free printable kit!
The Hard G
There is a hard G which is pronounced similar to G in Grape in the English language.
Any G that is followed by the vowels A, O, or U are pronounced with a hard G. Words such as gato, gordo, and gustar.
When followed by certain consonants, G takes on a hard sound as well. The combination of G+L as in globo, and G+R as is gracioso.
The soft G
The soft G is pronounced similar to the Spanish J when followed by the letters E and I, such as gente or girasol.
Lastly, in the chart below, you can see (in orange) the specific pronunciation rules when G is followed by U plus another vowel or a U with a dieresis.
For more specific details and examples, I recommend checking out I Will Teach You A Language’s description on how to pronounce the letter G.
The best way to learn the pronunciation nuances of G is through practice.
Below are some great YouTube videos that can help reinforce the letter G with your kids!
