We know the basic sounds and pronunciation letters make in Spanish, right? But in Spain, some letters are pronounced a little differently.
Say for instance, the c before e and i. The c in Spain is pronounced like the th in thin; in Latin America, like the s in see.
Words to try with both these methods: cigarro and cinco.
