Ultimate Spanish Pronunciation Guide

This guide outlines the basics to improve your pronunciation in Spanish. It compares pronunciation to English and has great descriptions that highlight the changes you need to make. It discusses common mistakes and how to fix them. It even provides tips on how to roll your R’s!

TodoELE  This is a website for Spanish teachers with many materials and exercises. Although it is conceived for Spanish teachers, I think it could be useful for people learning Spanish too.
