    No, not as far as I know. That is the way J sounds in spanish always, in Puerto Rico, Cuba, Mexico, Spain, Argentina and everywhere spanish is used.

    I thought the J was pronounced like the J in Jesus (in spanish, not english), and the g similar to the J.

    The J is pronounced like the J in Jesus (in spanish not english), which is pronounced like Hey-SuSE, which is not to be confused with Hey-RedHat or Hey-Slackware.

    I agree, more so because "vosotros" , as a translation for "you" is used only in spain and Argentina. It translates more like "thou." Us regular common folk use "ustedes" which translates to "you." :P

    Thou? Ha ha. I figured it was equivelant to the French "vous", which is the plural "you".
