Word of the Day:año
Translation: year
Pronunciation:awn-nyo

Año is an appropriate word to práctica su ñ (en-ya).

Don’t gringo-ize it. The first phoneme is a breath ‘awn’ as in ‘fawn’ not ‘an’ and in, well, ‘Ann.’

The second phoneme is a sound we don’t use in Gringlish anywhere but in cartoons. Research “Nya-ah-ah Dishonest John!” you’ll get the jist of it.
