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.
