Why is the English /r/ so difficult?

The /r/ sound, as we pronounce it in English can be a challenge. Think of it as a special kind of vowel sound. And above all, avoid letting any part of your tongue make contact with your gums, your palate, or the back of your mouth. For specific tongue and lip placement, see our 3-minute video lesson.

Two vowels to master: "Too soon!" and "Good book"

Here are two vowel sounds that are often confused by people whose first language is not English: the too soon vowel (as in “moon,” “tooth,” and “blue”) and the good book vowel (as in “look,” “foot,” and “put.”).

Most people can easily hear the difference, but it can be difficult sometimes to know when and how to pronounce the two sounds correctly.
