Phonetically? Spanish spelling is 100% phonetical.
Well, 90-95% phonetic. (I can't resist the temptation to "pull your chain").

gracias, could you spell it phonetically for me; i have trouble with the "double ll" sound, but that is the way to say it that an amigo from Barcelona told me to say it..

lol, thank you again, and yes, i do want to add that, so: "deja un mensaje" is pronounced deja > i know some French and since the 2 languages seem to share words, i' m okay; is "mensaje" said as if: men-say ( i understand that "j" is silent) but with a long "a" or short;i.e., "men-say" or "men-sah"'

tres bien--LOL; yes, I simply want to say "Hi, this is Mark"; may I assume that "soy" is pronounced, well, like "soy", as in soy sauce in English; this pronunciation thing is driving me nuts confused

Yes, funny, but true same pronounciation. jeje

and we do not use the pronoun, just say:

Hola , soy Mark smile

Probably you might want to add: ¡deja un mensaje! (leave a message)

A sad phonetic transcription using English spelling to reproduce Spanish sounds will only produce rubbish. Learn the basic rules to pronounce Spanish, and then you'll be able to read all words accurately. If you say things like 'men-say? or 'men-sah', you'll sound like a person with a speech impediment, at best, and you'll be lucky if you even get understood.

There are hard things to learn in Spanish, but reading is precisely one of the easiest ones (compared to most languages in the world, and particularly, English).

tongue wink thank you to all of you folks.... the amigo en BCN is a teacher of teachers for English as ESL and he is very helpful to me, but gets me lost in pronunciation, and translations often; so I try to not sound like a fool; writing and reading éspanol I get; saying it is another matter...
buenos dias/tardes/noches (depending) smile

DAY-hah oon men-SAH-hay

The Spanish J is not silent. Think of San Jose.

I have heard the form "Hola, habla Mark," referring to yourself in the third person.

And since you seem to know no Spanish, the H in hola and habla is silent.

HI Mark, I would use the other option:

**Hola , soy Mark **

If you say: hola, me llamo Mark <---|hi, my name is Mark. Not Hi, this is me! which I guess is what you want to say.

You confused me with the title...Hola, yo soy Mark. or Hola, me llamo Mark (My name is Mark)
