I have noticed that some hispanics say "doble u" and also some others say "doble v". Which one is the correct one? In english we say double u, not double v.

You are watching: How do you pronounce w in spanish

Both may be acceptable.

Here you will below it pronounced (point at the letter) ---> Alphabet via sound

Here you will review it created as "ve" doble ---> connect text

In Mexico we say "doble u" as in "doble u, doble u, doble u, punto, slrfc.org, punto, com" (some also conserve time and also simply say "triple doble u, punto..."


Really??????? Doble u?????

I am sorry, no offense...yet that sounds most likely as funny to me as the doble uve to you.

We say doble uve


Here in Dominideserve to Republic, are usage both terms, yet to me.... "doble uve" renders no sense; as in Wilboy you don't pronounce prefer Vilkid... you say Uilchild. - mgumbs, FEB 14, 2015
An english word it's not a great justification for understand any kind of letter in other langueras. Think around this: the "w" embebed in this gerguy word "volkswagen" is not pronounced like in english!! Indeed in Spain they say "uve doble" or "doble uve". - caos30, SEP 25, 2015
In fact, in german, the "w" in "volkswagen" is simply pronounced choose a "v". I'm sorry, however i suspect that the latin spanishers sindicate traduced from english "double u" to "doble u" :( - caos30, SEP 25, 2015

Just because your key-board is a dual v, it does not indicates that it has to be a twin v. When I create it I create it favor a uu. Double v is even more germanic, favor VolksWagen (W sounds prefer V). In english it sounds prefer U as in Work.

In spanish we bacount usage it, a lot of of the words are "anglicismos" (words that come from English) prefer Wyoming, Wafles. Etc. And some local indigenous words prefer wachuma.

So we deserve to say that in spanish it greatly sounds prefer a twin u.

Hope you understood what I pasted in spanish from the rae.es and also if we are going to start talking around the origen Germany type of, I recommend you to go check exactly how is pronounced in gerguy. - ajproart2, SEP 29, 2016
Que curioso vecina, en Colombia y Venezuela hablamos un español muy comparable. ¿Cuál es su punto de vista como profesora de español? - RicardoP, NOV 2, 2009

I say double u and also I am a kiwi (New Zealander) however this probably does not help!

When we look at the keyboard on our pc and/or phone keys, what perform you see? A "W" or "2 U letters together" (UU).I"m pretty certain you witnessed somepoint closest to VV instead of UU. So my answer is "Doble V"

En mi escuela y colegios asistidos durante mi niñes y adolescencia se me enseño que es "doble V"
