comment How to pronounce the consonants “y” and “ll”?
Leaving the IPA madness aside, my dialect (Paisa, a variant of Colombian Spanish) relates more strongly to the J as in Jello than the y as in yellow for the pronunciation of both ll and y. However, other dialects lean more towards y as in yellow. That is why I dislike the most common U.S. English pronunciation of Medellín (Me-de-YEEN) vs. the one I would have preferred (Me-de-JEAN).

comment How to Explain the use of vosotros to refer to an individual in the movie, “El Laberinto del Fauno” (Pan's Labyrinth)?
I thought the traditional version of voseo (the one used in fairy tales and the Bible vs. the variants from the Americas) was still used in parts of Spain for the singular second person. The only reference Note that the only reference I have is TV (see 0:15-0:25, 3:45-3:55).
