Word for the day

Back to Spanish for today’s word. I love the sound of it and I think it’s the longest Spanish word I know.

Here are some clues….

No. of letters = 18
No. of phonemes = 18
No. of syllables = 8

And the word is……

desafortunadamente = unfortunately

The learners will need to take their time and practise saying it but once they’ve got it, they’ll love it. It’s a very useful word but I think what they’ll enjoy about it is being able to show off with the longest word they know. I wonder if they know any English words that are longer? Or a word in another language?
