  1. Hello,
    I am Albertine
    This was a good opportunity to practice and improve my listening and pronunciation skills.
    Thank you

  2. Wow. This sound it is pretty difficult. I was able to reproduce the sound anyway, and google was able to recognize what I was saying. However I was not able to raise to back of my tongue while making the R sound. I can not think a word in my native language in which we make a sound like that, raising the back of the tonge. At least, as I said before I was able to reproduce the sound in a satisfactory way.

  3. Hello

    This lesson is about the sound “R”. Now I can focus on it and I feel confident every time I pronunce “R” at the beginning or in the middle of the word.
    Thank you very much
