This is the third lesson in our analysis of Spanish “Linking words”. I hope you are getting the hang now of how to link words together. In this lesson we will look at another combination that gets linked in spoken Spanish.
When a word that ends in a consonant is followed by a word that begins with a vowel the final consonant is linked together with the initial vowel sound. 
Let´s practice together the pronunciation of some linking words which end with a consonant and start with a vowel. I will first say the two words separated and afterwards I will link the same words together as I would speak in regular conversation. 
If you would like to see the meaning of any words you are unsure of please see the lesson notes.
