|English term or phrase: The symbol @|
|How do I pronounce the symbol "@" in English, and eventually also in Spanish and Portuguese...|
just to help you out with the Portuguese one...we also say arroba like the Spanish...pronounciation is a bit different but its written the same.
It is pronounced as it is spelled but take into account that the "rr" is pronounced quite strongly (quite different than the English "r". Should you be German (am just looking at your name and trying to guess, so forgive me if I am wrong) then I can tell you that the "rro" portion sounds very much like the "ro" in the word "Gross" In Portuguese the "a" at the end is almost mude, in Spanish its stronger. The "a" at the beginning is closed. It would be easier to explain and give examples if one could know your nationality.
The word comes from the arab "ar-ruba'a".
Regarding the English "at" and again in case you are German the pronounciation would be "ät" or "aet" just as the colleague before me pointed out.
Hope this helps you a bit!

In English it's <at> (the preoposition). In Spanih it's <arroba>. I don't know about Portuguese.
