The Spanish “r” has two separate sounds, depending on whether or not it is the first letter of a word. Neither one of these sounds even remotely resembles the English “r” sound. When the “r” is the first letter of the word, it is trilled like the “rr”, which is covered in the next lesson. Otherwise, the “r” sounds much like the “dd” of the word “ladder.” (It’s not exactly the same, but it’s much closer to this “dd” sound than to the English “r” sound.)
