¡hola todo!

The sound of (Double LL) in Spanish , is it to be pronounced as English Y , Or a lightened J ?

For example : Élla , is it to be pronounced EÍA Or EDJA ?

¡muchas gracias!

There are regional differences in pronunciation, but here you will find an example of how "y" and "ll" are pronounced by Mexicans.
