How to roll my R

I can still not roll my R after almost one year of learning german and trying to speak victorian on my school trip!

Any one got any tricks?

I can't roll my R's either and I have a lot of trouble with it, but I can do a single "roll" but sort of bouncing my tongue off the top of my mouth near the front? It works enough to make the rolled R noise during a conversation but I still haven't figured out how to hold the roll for any longer than that. Not sure if this helps but ?? Good luck! :D (also FIY the troubleshooting section of the forums is more for questions about issues with the duolingo site or app, just letting you know!)

I'm not sure why you're expecting to learn to roll your R from learning German... most Germans don't roll their Rs.

The one trick I've heard is to practice saying t and d one after the other repeatedly faster and faster. Not sure if it works, though.

I'm not sure if this will be of much help, but you can try garggling water, and practicing like that?
