Syllables in Spanish Language. The First Step for the fluency

Syllables in Spanish

Theory and classification of syllables in Spanish , on grammar,  is as extensive as it is in English. To the effects that we are dealing, we won’t deepen, for now, more than the conformation (sequences of vowels and consonants) and, a little later, the accent or intonation.

syllables in spanish

There are syllables in  Spanish with the following structures:

  • CV (consonant vowel) pa-ra
  • CVC (consonant vowel consonant) can-tar
  • CCV (consonant consonant vowel) tra-to
  • V (vowel) a
  • VC (vowel consonant) al-ma
  • CCVC (consonant consonant vowel consonante) tram-pa
  • VCC (vowel consonante consonante)  ins-pi-rar
  • CVCC (consonant vowel consonant consonant) cons-pi-rar
  • CCVCC (consonant consonant vowel consonant consonant) trans-cri-bir
  • CD (consonant diphthong) bue-na
  • CDC (consonant diphthong consonant) puen-te
  • CCD (consonant consonant diphthong) la-brie-go
  • D (diphthong) eu-ro-peo
  • CCDC (consonant consonant diphthong consonant) in-fluen-cia


Fortunately, all this explanation will be less complicated to understand than it seems, once we start to pronounce syllables  in Spanish beginning from the following posts, but it was necessary to visualize the different variants to avoid confusion when we see words that use these variants.

Are we Ready?

Well, now we are ready to start “talking” in Spanish. Exercise the pronunciation imitating the “sounds” that we will hear in the audio of the following Posts, will prepare us for the radical change of phonetics between the two languages, fact which is essential in order to achieve fluency in speech, but above all in listening to Spanish language.

Many times, that we have been learning a second language, have received, by instructors, teachers, tutors, the uncompromising instruction of  ‘think’ in that language in order to achieve fluency. Our opinion is that this is almost impossible, since the subconscious mind does not allow it “by definition”. The best proof of this occur when in extreme conditions (severe physical or mental pain, a great scare, when we talk while sleeping, or when we are hypnotized), the words flow, inevitably, in our native language.

However, we are convinced that what our teachers want to instruct us, is to be aware that we are reading (physically or mentally) in another language, and that despite we are using the same letters, can not let us overcome by the sounds in our native language. To clarify what we are talking about, we will refer again to the video of our Post Spanish Alphabet, where you will see English-Speakers suffering when are trying to pronounce simple words (in Spanish) such as: arroz, negar, ejercer, etc.

Some Tools.

There are many tools (online courses, CDs, etc.) that will help you learn grammatical rules, vocabulary, syntax, etc. but the only real criteria for acquire fluency in listening and speaking is obtained once you are “aware” that you are learning a new language, and that the sounds of this are different. Two of the methods, in our opinion, with better results for the practice of the new (and real) phonetic in Spanish, are those used by Learning Spanish Like Crazy and Rocket Spanish. Both can be tested by you for free and offer your money back guarantee for 60 days.
