A set of spelling tests for students to practice distinguishing between common Spanish consonant sounds.

Depending on who you ask, there are between twenty-five and thirty letters in the Spanish alphabet, and the pronunciation of them may depend on where they fall within a word, or which letters precede or follow them. Students will listen to the instructor recite the words in order to distinguish which letter or combination of letters is called for in particular words, and will either fill in letter blanks within given words, or write the entire word in the provided blank.

The answer keys associated with the completely blank worksheets will provide the correct word list for the instructor to recite.
