Fantastic video, I didn’t know about the Z/S thing for the longest. No one ever told me or corrected me 😒
Alter Ego
Great video as usual! Phonetically, Spanish is very simple, with fewer phonemes than most European languages I think. That's why we struggle speaking more phonetically complex languages. Greetings from Argentina!

The best video ever!

Love your accent \u003c3 I'm a Vietnamese speaker & I'm so confused about the TH sound.

Simply fantastic!! 😍😍😍 I'm an Italian native speaker and some interferences are similar to Spanish, vowels in particular😖 maybe one day I'll have the chance to see you speaking about the problems Italians have with English pronunciation 😉 \nLooking forward to seeing your next video dear Hadar💖💞

V and B, USUALLY we don’t make differences. We say cavallo (caballo), Pavlo (Pablo) and some others. You forgot School, snake. And the last one is funny because the first words of a baby are in general “DADA” in English, when a baby say it, I heard “TATA”, in my country grandparents are called TATA. Hahaha or Jajaja! 😉

You're the best teacher in the whole world. Thank you very much!

I'm no Spanish speaker, but I watch every video of yours-it's become my Netflix :D. I'm learning something from each one despite having 10+ years experience in teaching English(and 20+ learning it lol). I wish you had time and energy to create a similar one for Hungarian speakers, but we are a very small nation(with a very unique language).. Thank you, again, it's a pleasure to learn from you.

Very Useful video, Thanks Hader!

Hi Hadar, it is great to hear from you again, you mentioned a vital tool when it comes to tell if you're pronouncing the words as they should. In my case, I talk the word to google, If it repeats it back the same word, it means I am pronouncing the right word, otherwise I keep trying, if there is not success I let it for some other day.

Hello, Hadar, thank you for this video! I am from Colombia and, personally, I do struggle with the double or triple consonant endings. If \

Excited About Learning
I'm a native Finnish speaker myself but I speak Spanish so it's very easy to spot the mistakes Spanish speakers make all the time. Here's a list of mistakes Finns make in English: #1 Always stressing the first syllable: In Finnish, only the first syllable is stressed so naturally people only stress the first one on any given word. Though, I've noticed that a lot of Finns have learned to stress any syllable at will. That's quite new. It took me a year to first off hear where the stress was, then it became pretty easy to stress the right syllable. #2 kpt are pronounced without aspiration (this is a mistake Spanish speakers make.) #3 No distinction between z and s nor v and w.\n*English is so widely known that there's some people who speak Finnish and pronounce S & kpt the English way which is of course not right.\n#4 Vowels: Not pronouncing schwaa right. \n#5 There's a zillion of others but now I'm kinda tired of listing them so these'll have to do.
Favi Cortéz
So true!! Thank you for compiling this list and dissecting why and where these mistakes happen. As a native Spanish speaker and English being my second language, I can attest those are top challenges when pronouncing English. Usually we are not even aware of it and unable to identify them, until we start listening carefully to ourselves and when people have some difficulty understanding what we said.
Fill Colinz
Hadar thank you.\nSo useful ,as usually.
Flavia Fichmann Gilad
I would love to see a video like that for Portuguese speakers :)

Great job Hadar! You really hit the nail on the head: those are the main problems we encounter as Spanish speakers pronouncing English. Thanks a lot! \nBTW, my ear just cannot distinguish the sound difference between the words \
Josue Hernandez
Thank for the advice, You deserve more views and popularity.
Juan Lambert
Awesome video. We truly make those mistakes without being aware of them . For example the sounds v and b ,Cuban people like me pronounce them both the same way as b. Thanks for all your help and advice,I am sure this new road of learning a new language will be easier now .

Manuel Santana
Thank you for your video as spanish speaker I make a lot of these mistakes when speaking english, I have been living in Scotland for the past three years but I've always listened to american english because I love it and because I am from the Dominican Republic therefore American english is what I used to listen to when I was in my country, I also fumble with the words quite a lot when speaking english and I'm always repeating myself although I recognised that sometimes I speak way too fast. Your english channel is wonderful, thank you.xx
Maria D
You’re awesome 👏... talk about differences between “ch” vs “sh” sounds, please. For example words like “cheap” and “ship” Thank u 🌷

By the way you pronounce Spanish sounds, you would make an excellent Spanish speaker!
Nelju Lui
Hi Hadar, thanks for the video. You might expand on this topic making videos for each mistake, and maybe make more videos focused on Spanish speakers. It is a huge market for English teaching on YouTube (almost 500 million native spanish speakers). Greetings from Canada.

Paul Cobo
Paul here from Miami. This is the most comprehensive and detailed explanation of the challenges Spanish Speakers face. Yes, being aware is the first part. You are amazing at breaking down the problems and explaining the solutions to the proper pronunciation. My wife is Brazilian, could you do now of these video for Brazilians?
Raul Villalta
Excelent lesson!! Greeting from El Salvador!!!
Rodolfo José Reyes Gomez
The problem is, some of those mistakes take an inhuman amount of effort. time , and practice to fix if you didn't fix them when you were young. And let's not talk about the grammar mistakes we tend to make due to a very different language thought process .
Roy Pitchon
Watched this (excellent) video with the reverse motivation - trying to learn how to imitate a Latin accent speaking English.\nThis gave me some amazing, smack on pointers that had considerably improved my performance.\n:-)
Ruben Morera
I came to your channel after seeing a comment of yours in the last video of Rachel's English channel. I'm really impressed by this video since I'm a native Spanish speaker. I guess you had to make a very deep study about Spanish in order to make this video possible, and I really appreciate that. I still struggle a lot with some sounds , for example the \

anaterranova
Hii!! Im from Spain, the most common mistakes that I make are:\nTo pronounce s like a z : I actually dont have a clue when I should pronounce z.\nTo pronounce Y as J. I cant even make the difference because I dont know how to prounce any of them in english, in Spain both pronunciation are really different but any of them is like the pronunciation in english. \nAnd finally I also mispronounced H a lot of times\n\nThanks for the video
carlos orlando
I always consider myself a pretty good speaker, until I watch your videos and I realise there's still a long way to go... :'s That S/Z distinction is such a tricky thing...

Hi, Hadar. That happens because we are not even aware of those differences. I'll be more aware of it. Thank you so much. Hugs

What an amazing video. I'm an spanish speaker from Chile who live in New Zealand, and I have been following your videos for many months, and of course hundreds of videos of others, and this video is quite impressive. I have seen similar ones, but the way that you explain and imitate each mistake is superb. I would like to have \
