The sweet sounds softly roll off the tongue' = "los sonidas dulces suavemente rodar fuera de la lengua."

The verb 'Rodar = to roll To roll off the tongue = "rodar fuera de la lengua."

Amazingly enough I couldn't find the words, "roll - off" anywhere:- either in my Colllins English Dictionary nor in my Oxford Spanish Dictionary - English section. I was able to finally put in a search for the phrase into my Navita Translator on my mobile which produced this translation.

I hope that this helps grin

What I do, is to pretend like it is a "d" not an "r".

Example: caro. Put a couple of "d's" in there in place of the "r", then kind of come back and put a little bit of an "r" sound also.

ca dd o.------ca r dd o.

You kind of have to "vibrate" your tongue on the soft pallet.

It takes a lot of practice.

¡Buena suerte!
