Many non-native speakers of English struggle with the R in English.
Not only that this sound is challenging to pronounce (put the tongue where?!?) and makes us feel like pirates, but it also keeps changing depending on where it’s positioned. So even though it might be easy to pronounce in some words, it could be impossible to pronounce in other words and that makes us feel like the R is impossible!
To understand the R we need to do three things:
- Understand how to pronounce it
- Understand the different types of R sounds and what might be the challenge of each
- Practice, practice and then practice some more.
In this episode I’m going to walk you through each and every one of those steps, and at the end, even offer you the perfect way to practice with my practice sheet and audio: https://theaccentsway.com/the-r-in-english-podcast-freebie/
I’m also going to talk about the difference between the American R and the British R!
But most importantly I’ll give you tips and hacks on where and how to CHEAT, so you invest less effort, pronounce less R’s and sound BETTER!
Whether you’re struggling with pronouncing it or you know how to pronounce it but you don’t use it consistently, or sometimes you become too self-conscious about it, in this episode you’ll find things you can do that’ll help you use it naturally and easily.
