Pronunciation of my name or similar ones?

Hi...


My name is Zotya and I wonder how I can expect it to be pronounced by Spanish people when I arrive there in October.

I am specifically interested because if the first letter "Z".


Thank you all.

Hola Zotya

Depending on the region it will be pronounced slightly different. Are you going to Southern Spain, Northern Spain, central?

Your 'c' is pronounced as a 'th'. We also don't use the vosotros form. It is difficult.

Hola Robert,

We understand that for Spanish learners in Latin America there are a few aspects of the language that are different. We plan on offering lessons also based on Latin American Spanish but at the moment Kwiziq is focused on Peninsular Spanish, as is described in our FAQ section: What kind of Spanish will I learn?

Nevertheless we will offer some exercises soon where different pronunciation is used, e.g. from Southern Spain, which is very similar to that of many Latin American countries, in order to show a variety of accents. 

Saludos cordiales,

Inma

Hola otra vez Robert!

I just wanted to point out as well that in certain exercises, like dictations, when the letters C and S have different pronunciations can prove very helpful as students learn the correct spelling more easily when these two letters have distinct pronunciations.

Que tengas un buen día,

Inma
