We all know that rolling those r’s in Spanish can be a bit difficult at the beginning. But it’s all about practice, patience, and trying to have fun with it, so it doesn’t become frustrating!
If you are a native English Speaker, one way to approach it is by trying to mimic the R in a Scottish accent. Yup, Scotts roll their r’s alright. Also, how many of us haven’t watched those classic movie villains from Rusia speak with that rolled R threating James Bond at every time they get!
So get your bag of popcorn, put on Brave Hearth and/or those Sean Connery classics and get your R’s started!
(I advise to leave that popcorn maybe after the practice; otherwise, have a glass of water near you since it will be quite the experience).
If you are looking for a more thorough approach on those R’s here are some youtube tutorials which are helpful for practice:
And always remember it takes a bit of time, it’s like when we learn to whistle, we try different ways of blowing that air and shaping the mouth until one blissful day that sound comes along!
