I was wondering if anyone knew any interesting facts about Juanqui that others may not have known. I know that jc likes to eat mcdonalds, and when he was young he used to hit balls at switchboxes in his father's textile shop, and he broke about 20 powerpoints.

But we can also call him Mr. Ferrero, can't we! :haha:

(But seriously: I don't think he wants to be called Mr. Ferrero.) ;)

Hey, anyone knows how the name 'Juan' is pronounced. I have a few version of it here.

1. "Hu-wan'
2. "Yu-wan"
3. "vaan"

Anything else :scratch:

i know how it's pronounced, but it's so hard to write phonetically, it's more like wh/an or something

Arwelya
09-06-2004, 10:34 AM
It's like Gu-an or Gwan

Lalitha
09-06-2004, 10:38 AM
Thanks girls, and keep it coming. Where are the Spanish girls who were lurking around here?

MysticMoon
09-06-2004, 12:06 PM
I just looked it up in my English dictionary: the 'j' in Juan is spelled like the 'ch' in Loch Ness. You just have to speak it with a rough voice. ;)

Iza
09-06-2004, 01:25 PM
1. "Hu-wan'

Corinna
09-06-2004, 06:47 PM
or chuan?

MysticMoon
09-06-2004, 07:29 PM
yeah, corinna, in german you could write it that way. but all english speakers would read tschuan then. it's really difficult to explain. ;)

btw: did you get my pn?

Corinna
09-06-2004, 08:57 PM
yeah, anja, thnx
I'm just writing back

Thanks Anja. Ch-uan Carlos Ferrero - hope I'm getting it right. :rolleyes:

I think it's " hu-wan ".... That's how I pronounce it .. hehe..

Alisa
09-07-2004, 06:10 PM
i never thought it was a problem... all commentators say it "h (like in hi) uan" and i also thought it was that way... :scratch: mr. ferrero has lots of mysteries here and there...

MysticMoon

I've just found something for you!

'J' can be difficult, as its sound, that of the German 'ch', is absent in English except for a few foreign words where it is sometimes retained, as in the final sound of 'loch' or the initial sound of 'Channukah'. The sound is sometimes described as a heavily aspirated "h," made by expelling air between the back of the tongue and the soft palate. If you can't pronounce it well, you'll be understood by using the "h" sound of "house," but it's worthwhile to work on the correct pronunciation. Examples: garaje, juego, jardín.

from http://spanish.about.com/library/beginning/bl-beg-pronunciation-hardcons.htm#J

Hope this helps all non-German and non-Spanish speakers. ;)

Anja, that definitely helped my dear, :hug:

Now I think I have a clear idea on how his name is pronounced.

I also heard that he likes 50 Cent and EminemHE DOES??? OMG!
that's so not him!
where did you get that from???

I read a lot of inteviews so i'm not SURE but if I remember it right, but I think it was in "ace magazine" (the one from february 04, big article on JC, he was on frontpage and stuff... i'm sure u remember that) he said he doesnt like to be called mosquito... and his familiy calles him juan carlos and he likes that I guess.
my MSN nickname has been mosquito fo ages now, i know he doesnt like it though :rolleyes: but he's still fast! not that that's an arguement why i should keep my nickname! I keep it becos my MSN buddies don't know mosquito=ferrero, and that was my target :rolleyes: Referring to him unnoticed.
The "ch" from loCH ness is PERFECT for the "j" :)

ARTICLE The city dedicates a street to the tennis player Juan Carlos Ferrero

Found out an article, although it's quite old already.. But still nice to know: :)

The Valencian tennis player Juan Carlos Ferrero has a street in Redován. The sportsman visited the locality recently to inaugurate the sign with his name and to attend a warm tribute prepared by the Council of Sports, directed by Roque Mario Fuente, and the director of the Club of Tennis of Redován. Ferrero enjoyed the hospitalities of neighbors.
