  1. Hi. Glad you said you would deal with “r” on Wednesday as I struggled with “entretener” marvellous with the “e” with difficult for me with the “r”

    • We will give you some fantastic tricks and who knows, maybe you’ll end up rolling your “r” as well our friend Doug. You can hear about his tricks in tomorrow’s video.

  2. I lived in Spain for a very short while long ago. I couldn’t roll my “R”s but discovered that if I started by putting a “d”in front of the “R” it helped to get my tongue in the right place and eventually after much practice I got there.

  3. I enjoyed this video. I never realized that I, like Ben, was mispronouncing the word Tren. My friends in Spain never corrected my pronunciation. I took El Tren to visit them almost every day.
    Pronunciation is so important. Back in the 1960’s my Spanish teacher stressed pronunciation. We practiced dictation a lot. It helped to learn vocabulary since if you pronounce a word correctly it is easy to spell the word. This is certainly not true in English. Spelling bees aren’t necessary in Spanish.

  4. Hmm, I am of the opinion, that if you cannot curl your tongue, then you cannot pronounce r, let alone roll it.
    I am sort of fluent in French but have never been able to say rue, which comes out as roo.
    I look forward to the new course

  5. Esta es, para mí, una muy buena lección. No me di cuenta de que estaba pronunciando mal la “e” cuando hablaba español. Creo que el nuevo curso de pronunciación marcará una gran diferencia en mi capacidad para hablar y comprender el español. ¡Qué fetén!

    • Hola Doug,
      Decirte que tienes un papel muy importante en el video de mañana.

      Me alegra leer que has aprendido a pronunciar la “e” con el video. Con lo bien que pronuncias ya la “r” en cuanto afines tus vocales vas a tener una muy buena pronunciación. ¡Enhorabuena por todo tu trabajo!

  6. None of the tricks work for me re rolling the Rs (how do you say “rolling your Rs” in Spanish?). I have been speaking the language off and on for 40 yrs and have only been able to give a very short roll… not the real thing… not even close. All my profesoras insisted it is easy and possible. I was hopeful this would be the trick that worked. Que lastima.
