I'm portuguese and I know to speak spanish, plus I'm still learning but I have downloaded and read this pdf guide and it has some things incorrect.

From the page 5 to 7, one can see the spanish alphabet.

The spanish alphabet has 27 letters (the 26 from english alphabet plus the letter "ñ" after the "n").

The mistakes there are these ones:

-"ch" -"ll" -"rr"

All these 3 are diphthongs and are not considered to be an individual alphabet letter.

Plus, on the page 12, about the "notes on ñ and RR", it's said that n and ñ are alphabetized as separate letters as "r" and "rr" and in the example is given that, on a dictionary, "muñeca" comes after "municipal".

This is correct since "ñ" is considered as a letter.

But in the other example, looking on a dictionary, "carro" never comes after "carta". "carro" comes first, those 2 words are the same as my native language, portuguese, but i have also checked in a spanish dictionary and "carro" comes first of "carta".
