Any tips on pronouncing the German "r" sound? It seems aimilar to the French gutural 'r', but with a roll. Im tryibg to practice but I just sound silly
There are several diffferent "r" sounds in use among native Germans (just like among native French - Edith Piaf's "r", for example, is rolled).
The most common one is probably the same as the most common French one - a uvular fricative. You can probably substitute a velar fricative (Arabic ghayn).
A rolled r is also found in Germany so if that's easier for you, it's not wrong.
