Spanish travel guides often include a pronunciation guide which is aimed at non-Spanish speakers. This will help with conversational Spanish. It is a good option to those who are new to speaking Spanish. Most Spanish or Spanish-English dictionaries have a pronunciation guide. This usually uses phonetic spelling, which can sometimes be difficult to understand. This option is easier for those who already know how to ready phonetic symbols. There is also a third option, which will help both new and advanced students of conversational Spanish. The solution is to use audio tapes, CDs and DVDs to learn Spanish pronunciation from native speakers. It is also possible to listen to conversational Spanish online via MP3s on sites that offer free Spanish lessons.
