2) How and When to Make R
• In Dutch, the R is either made with the back of the tongue moving upwards – or the tip of the tongue touching the top of the mouth. Different regional accents create the /r/ sound in different ways in Holland.
• In English, the tip of the tongue curls back in the mouth without touching the top of the mouth.
• We only pronounce a R sound when there is a vowel sound after it: Really, Tree, Carry
• We don’t pronounce a R sound when there is no vowel sound after it: Car, Learn, Here.
