Having a hard time pronouncing the r's at the beginning of words
Whenever I try to say words like rouge, rue, de rein, etc. I either pronounce it as the English way of pronouncing it, but most of the time I tend to roll my r's (have been speaking Russian since I was little). Is there a way to pronounce words that I listed above and similar the right way fairly easily or do I just have to keep practicing?
The only advice I can really give is my personal experience so, take a big breath of air, put up your tongue to the top of your mouth not quite touching your teeth but a little distance between. then exhale as fast or slow as you want. Depending on how fast you exhale the more noticeable the rolled r's are. When you get the hang of it you can easily adjust the pressure of the r's. One other is your tongue is going to vibrant when you do roll your r's so don't get worried about that. Hope that helps!
