English/Spanish pronunciation jokesHumour 5 min read
These jokes play on the fact that before a Spaniard has fully got to grips with English pronunciation, their attempts to say the English phrases (on the left) will often end up sounding like the Spanish phrases (on the right). Try saying the English phrases yourself in a Spanish accent and ask a friend what you sound like.

Wanted → Guante
