The biggest problem I have with Spanish is not the reading, or even the writing. It's the pronounciation. I just don't know how to pronounce things in Spanish. I know most words in Spanish are phonetic, but still, there's words that have no real bearing as to why they're pronounced the way they are.
Well, I think that pronounciation should be simple in Spanish, since if you know how to pronounce each letter of the alphabet, you should be able to pronounce any word. This is not at all the case in English, French, German, etc.

Actually not any word in Spanish is very easy to pronounce. The "double r" is only well pronounce through drills and long exercising.
Click on the following link and choose "spanish": Phonetics: The Sounds of English and Spanish - The University of Iowa , then go to "vibrantes".
