Don't Get Stressed About Spanish

When you learn to speak Spanish, it is important to know how to pronounce Spanish words correctly. The rules of emphasis in Spanish are: - If a word ends in 'n', 's' or a vowel, the stress is on the next to last syllable (cuenta, burro, muchachos) - With other words the stress is on the final syllable (tener, parasol) - If there are any exceptions to this rule, there is an accent over the stressed syllable (ladrón, inglés) Learning these rules will make it easy to read and speak Spanish correctly.
