I have little to no accent when I speak english, but pronouncing "y" and "j" sounds differently still give me trouble.

 

I once told someone that my best friend went to Yale. He replied by asking what crime he commited.

i don't see why mexicans reverse the J and the Y. this one chunt at this sandwich place asked me if i wanted "jello mustard." i said no but i want yellow mustard. if it's so hard all they gotta do is reverse the letters on how they think it should be prounced and voila.

We barely use the "y" as a consonant in spanish, we have a double "L" for that, and it's nearly identical to the english "j" sound. Meanwhile, the spanish "j" is like the english "h".

 

It's not as easy as you think to consciously reverse the sounds while speaking. We barely use the "y" phoneme, and when we do it's for entirely differently-written words (such as "hielo"). The mind makes an immediate association with a much more "j"-like sound.
