Bom die Cristiane,

As palavras o mais complicadas, para mim, de pronรบncias sรฃo lhas como carro, arrabio, arranha-cรฉus e arranjar. Tenho sempre problemas de pronรบncias delas, mas devagar se vai ao longe. Sรณ tenho de falar mais devagarinho.

Atรฉ mais,

Olรก Shenhab!

Let me see if I can help you.

There are 3 sounds of the "r" in Portuguese.

1st - if it's in the middle of the sentence, it'd sound like "d" in English - for example: caro (expensive)

2nd - if it's at the beginning of a word, or after the letter "n" , or when it's double "r" - "rr", it'll sound like "h" in English - for example: carro (car), enredo (plot)

3rd - if the "r" is not followed by any vocal, it can sound like "r" in rat, or "d" in English depending on the accent - for example: porque (why)

I hope it helps!

Oi! Prazer em conhece-los!

I'm having some trouble with the R since in some words I can hear it's pronunciation like the 'r' in rat. In the lesson notes however, it says that the R is always pronounced as a 'd' or 'h'. Could you please clarify?

Muito obrigado! :smile:
