The Spanish “c” has two separate sounds, hard and soft. When appearing in the combinations “ca”, “co” and “cu”, the hard Spanish “c” closely resembles the English “k” sound. The difference is that when pronouncing the hard Spanish “c” there is no puff of air, as there is with the English “k”. When appearing in the combinations “ce” and “ci”, the “c” is softer. Spaniards pronounce this like the “z”, while Latin Americans pronounce it like the “s”.
