Where would we be without “B?” “B” words are common in the Spanish alphabet, known as el abecedario or el alfabeto. From bebé to biberón, Bolivia to Belize (Belice), and beber to besar, you cannot see or do much without the Spanish “B.” This free Spanish Letter B worksheet will help your students learn about «la be» while having fun.
In Spanish, “B” is called «la be». It is «la letra b o be» and is a consonant (consonante). It is pronounced «be» or «beh», where the “e” carries the sound of the Spanish “E.” As in most languages, the exact sound varies by location and dialect.
