THE DIFFICULTIES OF USING "SUENA" IN ENGLISH
You need to be careful when you are using the verb "suena" in English because you need to use different words in different situations. If your phone is making a noise (tu telefono esta sonando), then you need to say: "My phone is RINGING".
If, on the other hand, you remember something but you are not sure (me suena) then you need to use the expression: "it rings a bell". If you think something is interesting (suena bien), then you need to say "sounds good".
Hope that helps!
