10 Spanish Words That are Difficult to Pronounce | TheTribinTribe

¡Hola Tribe!

We all have those words that we try to avoid because they’re just so difficult to pronounce 🙈 For me, I try to avoid words with too many r’s in them, haha. Pipe and I made a super fun video of him teaching me how to pronounce hard-to-say words.

Keep scrolling to watch the video!

I had a really fun time this past weekend working at a Fall festival with my job 👻 And the best part was that I was able to practice a lot of Spanish! 😻 There are quite a few people in my community that only understand Spanish, so it was really exciting for me to have the opportunity to communicate with them.

I was able to ask them if they wanted one of our free toothbrushes (“¿Quieres un cepillo?), and then I told them the colors we had (rojo, azul, verde, y morado). And I feel really confident that my accent was very good!

I only got nervous when one woman went rogue and started telling me something in Spanish 🙈🙈 But after I asked her to repeat it I was able to understand that she was telling me that she had had braces for five years, so no more for her (Yo tuve frenos por cinco años, entonces no más). 😋 It feels so good to successfully have a conversation in Spanish all on my own!

Below is the list of words that we used in the video. You can add these words to your vocab list if there are any you don’t know (: Watch the video to hear the pronunciation!

1. Extraterrestre: Extraterrestrial/Alien

2. Rompecabezas: A Puzzle

3. Ferrocarril: Railroad

4. Extraordinario: Extraordinary

5. Madrugar: To Wake Up Early

6. Electrocardiograma: Electrocardiogram

7. Locomotora: Locomotive

8. Axila: Armpit

9. Regañar: To Scold/Discipline

10. Guantanamera: The Title of a Famous Cuban Song

That’s it for today you guys! Don’t forget to check out the video – we hope it is helpful/entertaining for you 😋 Add some words to this list! Leave a comment with some words that you have a difficult time pronouncing.

Learn Spanish Grammar: Verb Conjugation

Hola chicos!

Grammar is one of the hardest concepts for me to learn (even in English 😂😩) But that just means I’m going to work that much harder to wrap my mind around it 😃👍🏼

Below is a small list of words that I’ll be studying deeper into how to properly conjugate them, how to use them in a sentence, and what they mean. I’ll also be linking sources that will help us learn these verbs (: Enjoy + let me know if this has helped you!

1. Haber – to have (to have to do something)


– YouTube: senorbelles

– YouTube: ¡Vivatutor!

– YouTube: Learn How to Speak Spanish

So, this verb is used to express actions that have been or will be completed. + since it is used to form perfect tenses, it has to be joined with a past participle. (It is not used to express possession, like tener)


2. Decir – to say, tell

3. Dar – to give

4. Deber – to owe, must, should, ought to

5. Parecer – to seem, appear


– YouTube: Spanish Teaching

– YouTube: Señor Norton

Okay friends, that is a lot of information for this post. These are the resources I’ll be using to help me learn these verbs. I hope they help you out, as well!

Tell me in the comments if there is a word that is not on this list that you are trying to learn (:
Adios! -Hannah
