Spanish Pronunciation: the letter H

Updated: Aug 23, 2019

In Spanish, the letter h is always silent.

For example: helado (pronounced el-ladoh) (ice-cream), humo (oo-mo) (smoke), hombre (om-brai) (man)

Although the h is silent, it is important. See how meaning can change according to spelling:

¡Hola!: (olah) Hi!

Ola: (olah) wave (sea)
