One way to stand out from your Spanish classmates is with proper pronunciation. This video lesson from Butterfly Spanish (who should subscribe to here) will help you to speak properly by making the correct word sounds. The lesson focuses on cognates, which are words that have the same origin but that have expanded and changed over time as they went into different related languages like English, French, Portuguese and other romance languages. The lesson also covers how some of these things can be used also to improve your spelling or writing in Spanish. If you are a higher level than a beginner, then you may also be interested in this advanced video for Spanish pronunciation.
