Hola, I've just recently started learning spanish with the aid of cd. As it's completely audio; I am very much in the dark when it comes to spelling but I have a few questions concerning the cd.

The cd says that como = what? but I was under the impression that que = what?
Do they both mean what?

Also in a part of the dialouge he refers to how his name is pronounced and says 'es con hota y en espanol se pronuncia (and then says his name)'
I understand all of the above spanish sentence apart from the word hota also I'm not sure if it is the correct spelling.

Can anyone help?

Muchas Gracias,

Kris
First of all I'd like to be the first person to welcome y6ou in this forum. I'm sure you'll enjoy learning spanish as it is a beautiful language.

As regards to your query about COMO I think it would be better if you gave the whole context (or part of it) cause it might be a bit difficult to give the literal translation

HOTA (which is actually spelt JOTA) is the English letter J which is pronounced as H. Ex: JUGAR (to play) is pronounced HUGAR

Hope I've helped you some way. Hear from you soon [Y]
Thanks and thankyou for your quick response; I understand jota now.
The context that the word como is in is:

Him: Se llama (not sure of spelling) Antonio Juinetti
Her: Ah, your our rep
Him: ¿Como?

Thanks,

Kris.

Welcome to the forum! Emotion: smile

Basically, that is the "Spanish way" of saying "what." Como still means "how" but think of that use as one "special use" of como. Notice that in a question is spelled ¿Cómo?.
