Pocha and Guillermina – How Do You Pronounce Their Names?

With recent updates about the Mendoza girls relocation, some of you have asked how to say Pocha and Guillermina’s names, so we asked Scott to give you an official pronunciation. You can hear him speak both ladies’ names, plus the ecoparque’s nickname for Guillermina.

Make sure your volume is up so you can hear Scott’s message.

What next??

      Argentinian Spanish is a little different from what you might learn in Spain, but the language really is quite beautiful.
