Esperanto Accent

I am trying to learn Esperanto but I am really confused about the accents required for example, do i need to be able to do the uvula trill in French and roll my r in Spanish, both of which i stuggle with although on some words I can do the uvula trill on some words (très) and i can roll my r in Japanese but its different to Spanish. If anyone can tell me whether i need to be able to the trill and roll my r please please do

Try to breathe out from your mouth. Next, do the same thing, but make a 'r' sound as you do so. Keep doing this a few times, and you will eventually get it.

Note that you should move this to Esperanto, as this has nothing to do with Troubleshooting :)

At this writing, KatieR24601 has not yet reached level 2, so she’s unable to post anywhere but in the Troubleshooting forum (and thus she cannot move this to any other forum).

The R in Esperanto is a “Spanish” R ideally. Zamenhof said to base your pronunciation on Italian.
