Submitted by: Beatriz V, Spanish tutor, Tutorful

The β€œΓ±β€ sound can be written phonetically in English as β€œn-yah.” It’s an odd sound for English speakers, but it’s easy to learn and fun to practice. Once you master it, your Spanish accent will sound much more authentic!

To make the β€œΓ±β€ sound, follow these steps:

  • Place your tongue on the roof of your mouth, right behind your upper, front teeth.
  • Now say the letter β€œn”.
  • Bring your tongue down and say β€œyah”.
  • Repeat until perfected.

To listen to the sounds and practice, have a look at this short video:
