Oh, this is realy a dumb one. But it's really bothering me.
I can't roll my "r's". I have a slight speech impediment. How can I ever learn to speak Spanish if I cannot even make some of the most basic sounds? Told ya it was a dumb question...
There must be native spanish speakers who also cannot roll their tongues, but being born into a language gives a great advantage it would seem.
Bose:There are not dumb questions. Dumb is who doesn't ask.
Everything requires practice and that 's only one of the sounds anyway. Chinese people have great trouble pronouncing this and they never get it right, but still can communicate.
If you have a chance, I think you should ask an language speach specialist.
You could probably even find a way to avoid using some of the words? there not that many with that sound anyway. Some of us do that in English, for years I've avoided using the word beach for example using ocean (you probably guessed why) and there are others that I can't recall at this time.
BoseI think you should ask an language speech specialist.I think that's a good idea, although it might be expensive. I don't know. I know there are professionals - linguist, you name them - that will help you pronounce words as a native. And again, I know this might be expensive.
I don't think you are going to have a major problem; as long you as you can communite, you should be fine. There are a lot words in English where you roll your r's, may be you can try using those to pratice.
AnonymousHi There,There are native speakers who can't roll their R's!!! I have a friend who was doing a missionary work in Argentina (He's Mormon) in an area that has a very high indigenous population. They didn't roll their R's. To most people it sounds like they are saying L's. So, words like Rojo would be pronounced Lojo and so on. He learned his Spanish there and so had a very interesting accent.

AuserThere are a lot words in English where you roll your r's, may be you can try using those to pratice.Unless you're from Scotland (or perhaps some other regional dialect?), there aren't any English words in which the "r" is rolled like the "rr" in Spanish.
