Actually, he's asked that they pronounce it tho.

In Spain's Spanish, the S, C and Z have different pronounciations. Supposedly in Latin American Spanish, it should be the same way, but it isn't. So, in summary, the pronunciation of the letter "Z" is like "th".

It's a Castilian Spanish thing. They have a 6th verb conjugation as well, unlike Latin-American Spanish, which only has 5.
The difference between the Queen's English and the American vernacular.
We say cigarette, trunk and hood, they say , boot and bonnet.
Interesting. Makes since now. However, when in Rome...

We are in America and in the English language "Z" doesn't sound like "th". Dude just sounds like a tool. You go around Houston asking people if they could spare a , you might get yourself in a bit of a bind.

I thought I was the only American that new the difference between a boot and a bonnet!

The old air-cooled VW confused the issue!

Don't smoke! Don't know anything about a !

How sweet of the commentator to speak jorges name in his native tongue. Unfortunately we are in America and it tends to cause a bit of confusion. One commentator pronounces it "lorentho", the other, "lorenzo". If I ever go to spain, my "z" is still gonna sound like a "z" should.

Hey, do they have thebras in spain?
