Imagination is one of the most precious things about childhood. Give kids a chance to discuss the words in their imaginations with this Spanish I worksheet. It offers practice with letter formation and key vocabulary.
The “official” name of the Spanish “I” is «la i», but you might also see or hear «la i latina». It is generally pronounced “ee” or «i» or “e la-tina” (like the letter “e” + “la” + the name “tina”) or «ee lah-tee-nah» depending upon your native language. As in most languages, the exact sound varies by location and dialect.
However, since phonetic alphabets differ wildly or are difficult to understand, the easiest way to learn to pronounce «la i» is to hear it over and over and to practice. Try one of these videos to practice the “official” name or this audio clip to practice hearing and saying «i latina».
