Yet they pronounce LOOT as lot. Interesting.

You mean with the English schwa (Ə) sound? That is interesting! Spanish speakers have a very difficult time with that sound. Just ask a native Spanish speaker to say comfortable or fountain. It's really hard for them.

On the other hand, it took me a long time to time estacionamiento and ingeniería trippingly upon the tongue with no hesitation. It helps to smile when you speak Spanish.

Some words in Spanish are just fun to say. "Ayuntamiento" and "plumafuente" are two of my favourites.
