Spanish pronunciation? If you can’t beat them, join them

You have been doing your best learning tenses, practicing with Bilingo and Tilingo however, you are still not able to be understood by native speakers.

It seems like they speak so fast, like a machine gun, right?
Do you know why?

Spanish is a syllable timed language (English and German are stress timed languages, this is what makes you sound foreign while speaking Spanish).

Languages are kinda music, the most we imitate the rhythm, the most we will sound alike natives, but maybe sounding native is not your goal but at least to be understood.


Language pronunciation starts in our articulatory system, this is the languages’s sounds factory.

Just a friendly reminder> being confident while speaking a second language helps a loooot!

It’s normal feeling threatened by what we don’t know -> a foreign language/ foreign sounds -> nervous system’s alarms turn on immediately -> we can fly, fight, fawn or… freeze? Yep! freeze -> draw a blank -> switch to your native language if it is possible.

If you can’t beat them, join them.

If you can’t pronounce them, learn them.

Wondering if this suits you?

A 10 minute discovery call could help.

Un buen martes…
