Pronunciation of the letter H in Spanish
In most cases, the letter H in Spanish is silent.
In some cases, the letter H form a digraph or a combination of two letters to produce one sound.
When the letter H is preceded by the letter C, it forms the sound Ch, such as the word chair in English.
For second language learners, where English is the first language, this can present some difficulties because CH in English can take on different forms.
You can have a hard Ch such as charger, or a soft Ch, such as chef, which is pronounced like /shef/.
In Spanish, the digraph CH always produces a hard sound.
Below are a list of words that have ch:
- Chicharrón- two CHs in one!
The Spanish Academy refers to the letter H as the “Silent Helper.” Check out their blog post on the pronunciation of the letter H in Spanish. They offer a more in-depth description for when you come across H in different scenarios!
