Russian “Р”


Does anybody have advice as to how I can train myself to pronounce Russian “p” correctly? I’m having more problems with it than with “Ы” :)

Apart from listening to natives and trying to copy the pronunciation, I can just recommend you not to focus on it too much. Unfortunately, some accent will always be present but that doesn’t mean people won’t understand you or will think you are dumb

Some Russians (especially children) can’t pronounce it too so not a big deal :)

Use Youtube, watch videos on pronunciation and repeat the words (aloud)

One effective way is tongue twisters
