Haha, I was sure someone would ask that! I almost included something about it in this video, but I didn't want it to be too long. There are some general rules, but I think it's normally best just to learn the pronunciation of each individual word.
About the Spanish (and Italian,...) r-sound: I'm German (and not from the Bavarian part of Germany), so I wasn't able to pronounce it. Then I wanted to learn Spanish, and my Spanish teacher said 'No no no, you cannot pronounce the r the German way, you MUST learn to roll it. He advised me to say dt dt dt dt - hardly without a vowel sound between them - because the movement of the tongue behind the front teeth is quite similar to the movement when you are rolling the r. So wherever I was (waiting for the bus, not being able to fall asleep, whatever) I was saying dt dt dt... And finally, finally, after about a year!, I started producing the r I was aiming for! Yeah! And it became better and better. And then - when I no longer needed it - someone told me such a good way to practise it: take this very silly German sentence "Brot und Brötchen, Brühe und Braten, bringt die Braut dem Bräutigam." But instead of every r after the b say a d. So you say: 'Bdot und Bdötchen, Bdühe und Bdaten, bdingt die Bdaut dem Bdäutigam.' 😂 It sounds absolutely hilarious, it is so much fun, and most of all - it is so effective!!! Suddenly your tongue begins fluttering about and making the Spanish r instead of the 'wrong d'! I should've known that before!
I know you are quite an expert in German. Can you say this 'Bdot und Bdötchen'-sentence? 😁😎
I understand :). Even though I lived in Germany for a year and I worked on my German a lot, there are still some accents that I struggle with (I think mainly Bavarian ;)). And yes, comedy can be very hard! I don't know if you've seen my videos about movies and TV shows, but I mention that. It's great that you keep watching things, though!
English with Max Thank you! It is so lovely that you tried! (In fact I teach English - to beginners - so my English should be OK. I'm quite good at reading, writing is ok, speaking is ok but more difficult, but the most difficult thing for me is listening (understanding). As soon as a person has an accent or as soon as people are talking together, it is really hard for me to understand. And the most difficult thing is understanding films, TV series and comedy. Oh dear! Very frustrating. 😕 So I keep watching English speaking videos to get as much input as possible! 😊)
I tried it, and you're right, it's similar to saying a Spanish/Bavarian R, and it's certainly good for the tongue!
I find the German R much easier! (At least the standard German R ;).)
Btw, your English is excellent!!
Hi , Max ! Each language has its peculiarities in pronunciation. Just as I'll never pronounce the TH sound correctly, you'll never pronounce correctly the RR sound as in CORRER (To run ) Try it ! I promise I will not laugh
Thank you for your great efforts.
Unfortunately I couldn’t find any mistake in your previous video but I can figure out one mistake in this video, you put pillows on armchair but it should be on bed don’t them?
