Hola William,


Thank you for your comments.

Yo no creo que sea algo difícil, todo depende la practica.

A good practice is to look yourself in a mirror and practice your pronunciation.

Sigamos practicando.

Hola metehan,


Thank you for your question.

There is! "cabello" is used for human hair and "pelo" for animal hair.

But many people confuse them and use "pelo".
