Pronunciation is a very interesting matter. The Canarian accent is difficult to understand if you have used a learn Spainsh tape that uses the "correct" pronunciation.

In the Canary Islands the c is pronounced as an s, so that Gracias becomes grasias, or it would if the final s was not dropped. To add to the difficulties many of the people living here are from South America, and they have a different accent. For example the Argentinians pronounce yo as jo.

La pronunciación es un asunto muy interesante. El acento canario es difícil de entender, especialmente si usted ha aprendido la pronunciación uniforme.

En las Canarias la letra C es pronunciada como un s, para que gracias lleguen a ser grasias, o hagan si el s final no fue dejado caer. Añadir a las dificultades muchas de las personas que vive aquí están de Sudamérica, y ellos tiene un acento diferente. Por ejemplo los argentinos pronuncían yo como jo.
