  • In this American English pronunciation video, we're going to have some fun holding out the

  • R sound.

  • As with any new concept or sound, it's a great

  • idea to slow something down when you're first working with it. Slow it down, and drill it

  • over and over. If you can speed up, great. But never sacrifice correctness for more speed.

  • Today we're going to apply this slow-down method to the R consonant, specifically, in

  • consonant clusters. I've noticed, with some of my students, that even when they've gotten

  • a good R sound, sometimes in clusters it tends to turn more into a W sound. Or, sometimes,

  • it turns into more of a D sound, a flap. Now when you do this, you can't hold it out. So

  • holding out the R is a good way to test that you're doing it correctly. So, say these words

  • along with me, really holding out the R sound. If it feels awkward, that's a good sign that

  • you really need this exercise, that the R sound is not yet second nature to you.

  • If that was hard or uncomfortable, do it again. And

  • do it on your own many times. That is what it takes to drill a sound that is new. I hope

  • this helps. That's it, and thanks so much for using Rachel's English.
