Can you pronounce the "RR" sound in Spanish?

    Takes me some effort to remember to roll it but yes :)

    Gotta say I had problems with the simple (yet pretty loud) r of my own mother tongue when I was little.

    I still have problems with the ssh between s and sh in Spanish.

    The others have some good suggestions...but this is what worked for me. Say the word "ladder" or "udder" about 30 times, really fast. Then say a Spanish word with RR. You'll do much better. These "dder" words seem to get your tongue in the right place for it. :) P.S. If you come from Australia, England or another region that doesn't have a hard R sound in English (laddah, uddah rather than ladder and udder), you may have a hard time ever pronouncing it.

    Yes, I'm Welsh and we roll our 'r's. It's the English who can't.

    Many English people pronounce their 'r's like a 'v'.

    no :(

    and other spanish kids used to make fun of me because i was the only one who could never do it. And sometimes people didn't understand what i said because some words require that sound
