Pronunciation Practice

 You will hear many Spanish words with RR and R in it! Listen carefully and try to focus on the different sounds of the Spanish words with RR and R. Pay attention to your tongue!

  • To pronounce the Spanish double RR sound, try to imitate a purring cat.
  • To pronounce the Spanish R sound try to relax your tongue and put it on the front teeth. You should feel it making a little vibration.

Listen to your recorded audio file! You will be amazed how this will improve your awareness of the correct Spanish pronunciation.

But don’t get frustrated, it takes some time to get used to the correct tongue movements. The human tongue is a very complex part of our body and needs to be trained for the movements that you are not used to.
