  • This sounds like a homework question. Why don't you review the alphabet and see which one doesn't fit into English? - --Mariana-- Sep 1, 2009 flag

á é í ó ú ñ

The first 5 are not separate letters, but stressed letters. The Ñ is the only one that only exists in Spanish.

The stressed vowels are not considered separate letters of the alphabet (they're simply normal letters with an accent). Opinions about "ch", "ll" and "rr" are divided and may depend on when you learned the alphabet (and how you feel about the RAE's position {change of position]). As far as I know, "ñ" has always been (and continues to be) considered a separate letter.
