What is Dulce?
A Quick Overview Of Dulce
Dulce is a Spanish word. There are two main types of Spanish pronunciation: South American Spanish, and European Spanish (from Spain). It's best to choose which one to use based on your location. If you are in the UK, use the European Spanish version, while English speakers in the USA should use the South American pronunciation of dulce.
Dulce pronunciation in Spanish
The only tricky part is the pronunciation of the 'c' because it's followed by an 'e'. In Spain it is pronounced like the 'th' in 'thin', and in South America it is pronounced like the 's' in 'sin'. English speakers need to decide which one to use, and then use it consistently. Remember that Spanish is a phonetic language (unlike English and French), so make sure you sound both syllables 'DOOL/seh' or 'DOOL/theh' depending on the pronunciation you are using.
