Spanish vowels have one sound each: a = ah e = eh i = ee o = oh u = oo. Every vowel should be pronounced (except for the u after a q [que is pronounced keh]). In Spanish, the letter j is pronounced as an English h (and the letter h is silent), ll sounds like a y (or a j in some countries), and ñ has an ny sound (año sounds like ah-nyo).
Spanish nouns are masculine or feminine and are usually preceded by an article: la = feminine the; el = masculine the; una = feminine a or one; un = masculine a or one. Articles (and –s/-es after nouns) reflect plural: las = plural feminine the; los = plural masculine the; unas = feminine some; unos = masculine some.
