Estoy confundido sobre la pronunciación de "los doble r's"
Can anyone give me some tips on how to pronounce the double r's in spanish words? I can roll my tongue without saying anything, but I can't seem to roll my tongue and speak in Spanish. Also, do you roll your tongue when saying a spanish word that begins with r (like regresar) or just when saying a word spanish word with two r's (like correr). Thanks for your help!
¿Alguien puede enseñarme cómo decir palabras en español con dos r's? Puedo marcar las erres sin decir las palabras, pero no puedo marcar las erres con las palabras de español. ¿Tiene que marcar las erres con las palabras que empiezan con r (cómo regresar) o solamente las palabras con dos r's (cómo correr)? ¡Agradezco su ayuda!
If you can make the "rrr" sound but just not in a word, then practice, practice, practice is the answer (make sure you're alone as to not cause others to become concerned about your mental state).
Yes, the single r at the beginning of a word is rolled just like a double r. In fact there are a couple of other cases where r is rolled, like after the letter n (Example: Enrique). I can't remember the other cases, though.

When my daughter was 5 years old, she made up her mind she would learn to do this, and she went around the house for like two days saying "Gerardo, Gerardo, Gerardo" over and over again (We had a friend named Gerardo at the time). She drove everyone nuts, but she did it !! So like the dude says, practice is the key!
Thanks for your help! The sound doesn't seem to come when I'm saying words with it, but I guess it will just come after saying it over and over... After all, practice is gonna be the only way I get better at Spanish!
