I've noticed this with other sentences, but thought I would finally make a comment. Why is it as if "är" is hardly pronounce if not at all?

The r in this word is usually silent in normal speech. There are other words where some letters are silent, eg. jag = ja, har = ha, etc.

är is pronounced like air or ear depending on where in Sweden you live. And as said above, the r is usually not pronounced.
