the word “and” -or- “y” in spanish sounds like the letter “e” in english.

y en español es una palabra importante!

Yes. The conjunction “y” sounds like the letter “e”. But, when the letter Y is part of a word and it is combined with other vocals, it sounds exactly the same as in English, like the initial sound of the word yesterday. As an ending sound it may sound like “e”.
Example:
Yo soy

Do you know how to pronounce the word “y”?
