How do i pronounce "G". I know it sounds like an "H" before an E like Gente = Hen-tay . What about being followed by an A , I , O ,U . Other letters are G only like the G in girl.

1. When G is followed by E or I, you pronounce it like H (un ingeniero, un gitano)

2. When G is followed by A, O or U, you pronounce it like G in "girl" (un gato, un gusto, una goma).

3. GUE and GUI - you don't pronounce U (una guerra, una guitarra), unless there's Ü (un pingüino)
