I have heard Spaniards, Venezuelans and Colombians(mostly south americans, excludding Argentineans and Uruguayans) pronouncing Ll as an English J sound, but they also pronounce the Spanish Y as the English J... go figure... Central and North American, Spanish speaking people(Mexicans, Cubans, Guatemalans, basically caribbean people) prn it like you said, like ee or English Y. That is how I speak spanish. I NEVER use the english J sound when speaking Spanish... go figure, again.
I only know what one is tought in Grammar School. Proper pronaunciation is Spanish Ll = English "J" Spanish Y = English "Y" or "ee" Spanish J = English "H"
Magia, who speaks caribbean spanish, del pais de la eterna primavera!
