Just as we saw recently with the letter M, I am happy to tell you that the pronunciation of the letter N is the same in Spanish as in English. If you actually listen to the way Spaniards speak, you will notice that practically all the consonant sounds are lighter or softer than in English which make them difficult for us to hear at times. With a simple phrase like “no pasa nada” it is always the vowel sounds that will come over clearest, while the mouth glides over the consonants. So even though we pronounce the letter the same, the actual sound produced can still be a little hard to pick up. It’s just a question of tuning in to this and getting used to it over a period of time.
