In Spanish, “C” is a letter that appears often. Casa (house), comer (to eat), cabeza (head), and cuidad (city): all these words require students to learn to write and pronounce “C.” In the Spanish alphabet, known as el abecedario or el alfabeto, as in the English, “C” is the third letter and second consonant. This free Spanish Letter C worksheet is designed to help students master «la ce» while simultaneously learning letter “C” vocabulary.
In Spanish, “C” is called «la ce». It is pronounced «ce», «se» or «theh» and is a consonant (consonante). As in most languages, the exact sound varies by location and dialect, but «la ce» carries an especially distinct sound difference between Spain and Latin America.
However, since phonetic alphabets vary wildly or are difficult to understand, the easiest way to learn to pronounce «la ce» is to hear it over and over and to practice. Try one of these two videos to hear and practice the sound.
