The Spanish Alphabet

Depending upon whom you ask, the Spanish alphabet contains between 27 and 30 different letters.

Officially, Spanish adds only one additional letter after N, that looks like this: Ñ and is pronounced like the NY in caNYon.
That little squiggly symbol on top is called a tilde (TILL-dee).

N = N; Ñ = NY

When you look in a Spanish dictionary, this will be the only letter that throws off the order of the words, and it always falls after the “regular” N.
 
However, there are 3 additional Spanish SOUNDS that are sometimes included as separate Spanish letters: CH, LL, and RR.
 
CH = CH; LL = Y; RR = RRRRR (trilled)
