comment Was “rr” ever considered officially a letter of the Spanish alphabet?
Most likely so. This was in 1st to 5th grade.

comment voiceless vs voiced consonants / consonantes sordas vs sonoras
Tongue twisters are the way to go! If not that, then just repeat da, de, di, do , du outloud in the mirror or something when you're alone.

comment Was “rr” ever considered officially a letter of the Spanish alphabet?
When I was growing up and learning spanish in grade school, we always sang the alphabet with the the double letters.. 'ch','ll', and 'rr'. Sung to the tone of a miliary marching chant.

comment “Que viene” vs “próximo”
No idea why I mentioned months in that last comment. I meant to say year.

comment “Que viene” vs “próximo”
Why is it incorrect? The last time I checked, the upcoming month is always the next month. I never said that el año que viene could not be used; in fact, I sad they were interchangeable. Upcoming is a word used to describe something approaching, and every month is always approaching the other.

comment Creating new spanish words by adding dimunitives
That only describes what the suffixes do. It shows no connection between the [i] vowel and diminutives. I suppose I could post a question about it. It just seems to me that people use that closed front unrounded vowel to express diminution. For instance, the [í] in -ísimo not only adds excursiveness but conveys this what I'd call cuteness.

comment Creating new spanish words by adding dimunitives
I would like to say that there is a link between closed front unrounded vowels and diminutive communication, but I can't find the facts about it anywhere. es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vocal_cerrada_anterior_no_redondeada
