Animals, cookies, and music-making, oh, my! Some of children’s favorite things begin with “G” in Spanish: gatos (cats), galletas (cookies), and guitarras (guitars). “G” is also one of the most difficult letters for children to learn to write, so they often need lots of practice writing and visualizing it. This free Spanish Letter G worksheet is designed to do just that while allowing students to have fun learning Spanish.
“G” in the Spanish alphabet (alfabeto or abecedario) is called «la ge». However, unlike in English where sounds are highly variable, in Spanish, «la ge» is almost exclusively pronounced with one sound. Exceptions to the single Spanish “G” sound most often exist in regional and dialectal differences.
However, since phonetic alphabets vary wildly or are difficult to understand, the easiest way to learn to pronounce «la ge» is to hear it over and over and to practice. Try one of these two videos to hear and practice the sound.
