Hola Trivikram Pattanayak,


Thank you for your question.

They may sound alike most of the time but the position of the lips when you pronounce this are different.

Sigamos practicando!

I have a question. If you listen carefully, nos vemos sounds like nos bemos. Why does the 'v' sound like a 'b'?
