Spanish Alphabet

Updated: Mar 28

Spanish alphabet names song

This is a song a made to teach the names of the letters in Spanish to my students. To introduce the alphabet to your students, start by emphasizing the name of each letter. Prior to singing the song, introduce the vocabulary words "abeja" (bee) and "miel" (honey) that will be used in the song. Once the students are familiar with these words, you can introduce the song and practice it across multiple lessons until they have memorized it.

In the video below, you can observe me incorporating the song into one of my lessons with a student.

Spanish alphabet names and sounds

In Spanish, there are 27 letters. The letters (called digraphs) ch, ll, and rr are no longer counted as letters of the Spanish alphabet. Some of the letters have several names in different areas of the Hispanic world. However, The Royal Spanish Academy (Real Academia Española) recommends the use of a common name for each letter and that is what we will see during this video. Pay close attention to the video to learn the names of the letters in the Spanish Alphabet.

I recommend visiting the website of The Royal Spanish Academy (Real Academia Española) to access reliable information and clarification regarding the proper use of the Spanish language. The Royal Spanish Academy is Spain's official royal institution dedicated to ensuring the stability and standardization of the Spanish language.

Spanish Alphabet - Uppercase and lowercase

To help your students understand the concepts of "mayúscula" (uppercase) and "minúscula" (lowercase), you can employ hand gestures. Use the gesture of spreading your arms wide, indicating something big, for "mayúscula" to represent uppercase letters. And for "minúscula" or lowercase letters, make a gesture of bringing your hands closer together, signifying something small. This visual approach can enhance their comprehension.

For a more concrete demonstration of this strategy, I recommend watching the video below, which provides a visual example of how to use hand gestures in teaching these concepts.
