Android Spanish character accents?

I'm trying to learn Spanish and want to be able to enter the accent marks over characters. Duolingo points out my error when I don't do that. One of my devices, a Google Nexus 7 with Android 5.1.1, allows me to quickly switch back and forth from English to Spanish keyboards. It's a very elegant solution. But I haven't found a way to do it on my Android 4.4 LG34c phone - which is always with me. I can change the language of the whole device, but haven't found a way to quickly switch just the keyboard

Can anyone suggest solutions?

Thanks.

You might be able to select the accented keys if you hold down the button, then it should give you the option.

My Android lets me add more than one keyboard to switch between by going into "Language & Input". Yours doesn't have that?

Holding down the key worked perfectly! Why didn't I think of trying that? The other trick, switching between keyboards, works on my tablet but not on my phone.

Thank you very much. That solves my problem.
