Something amazing about this letter – almost unprecedented in fact – the letter F is
pronounced exactly the same in English as in Spanish. Seems almost incredible, but it’s true.
In English we illogically have two ways of spelling this sound – “f” and “ph”. However, you may well have noticed that “ph” words in English are spelt with an “f” in Spanish. These Spanish words can look a little odd to us, especially when the words are academic type ones like filosofía (philosophy) and fenómeno (phenomenon). To our eyes they can look like childish misspellings, but no, it’s just Spanish being more logical again!
