Tip of the month. G or J?


Let me introduce you today to something a lot of Spanish speakers are not still sure about how it works: Spanish spelling rules of letters G and J.

We must use letter G:


  • with verbs ending in -ger and -gir.Examples: Coger (To take), dirigir (to direct, to lead).
    Exceptions: tejer (to knit) and crujir (to crunch, to creak).


  • with words begining with geo-, gent- and gen-.Examples: geología (geology), gentil (kind), generoso (generous).
    Exceptions: jengibre (ginger).


  • with words ending in -gia, -gio, -gión and -gional.Examples: alergia (allergy), colegio (school), religión (religion) and regional (regional).
    Exceptions: lejía (bleach).




  • Hope this helps!
