Brief: Teaching a Spanish R

By Pam Marshalla

R tileQ: Do you have any tips on how to help a student produce the Spanish R trill?

Two methods I have used-

  1. Start with a lingua-labial raspberry and then have the client pull the tongue in.
  2. Say the word “butter” with a clear D– “Budder”.  Say it while making the tongue-tip linger on the palate longer.
  3. There also are YouTube videos about how to do this 🙂
