In the United States alone, 10% (35 million) of the population is Hispanic and this number is projected to double by 2030 (United States Census, 2000).  The international and domestic research communities have responded with a plethora of information concerning Spanish developmental tendencies.  This course presents Spanish speech development as compared to English.   It is easily accessible for both Spanish speakers and non-Spanish speakers alike and is divided into basic speech topics (phonology, vowels, consonants, and syllable structure) in order to be easily digested.
