  • "Here’s the trick of how to roll your Rs: whenever you come across an “R” in Spanish, say it like the hard consonant “D”. That’s it. It’s that easy. It’s an aural trick. Spoken fast enough, the “D” sounds like you rolled an “R” really fast."

    found that answer on a website... but you can practice making just the "rrrrr" sound by itself before trying to incorporate it into words... or pretend you are a "purrrrrring" kitty cat... make it fun so it's not too frustrating

  • That is something I could never learn no matter how hard I tried.

  • it's been a while since I took spanish...but my teacher always told us to pronounce it as "row"...just to kind of get the hint of how it's supposed to be. I don't know if that will help, but it helped me in HS! lol
