Pronouncing the "rr" in Spanish

Does anyone know of a technique to help in learning how to pronounce he "rrrr" sound in Spanish. I'm not having much luck so far.

Thanks in advance, JuanJuan

Many Spanish children have problems pronouncing this sound (my son is one of them) and as David suggested they are told to make a car sound.

Me doy cuenta de que los niños a veces tienen la misma problema, los domingos miro Plaza Sesamo. Me gusta porque yo lo entiendo porque en la programa los niños hablan las palabras fáciles, como un, dos, tres, cuatro

@Bob: Atención! Las palabras como "Problema", "Programa", etc., terminan en "a" pero NO son femeninos. (EL problema, EL programa...)

Muchas gracias Nunca había aprendido esas palabras correctamente

Una pregunta, ¿Unas palabras pueden cambiar su artículo cuando se las pluralizan?

el agua - las aguas
el alma - las almas


¿Son solamente las palabras las cuales empiezan en "a" acentuado? ¿O no estoy en lo correcto?

muchas gracias por adelanto!

Estás en lo correcto, Bob. Se cambia el artículo (pero no el género de la palabra), para evitar la repetición de aes. ("Aes" es el plural de "a")

El agua salada.
Un agua cristalina.

El alma purificada.
Un alma pura.

Y no te olvides de las palabras que empiezan por 'ha' tónica. También siguen esa regla.

Very true, Rusty... "el habla apropiada" y "el haba seca" también se incluyen.
