|Question:||pronunciation of "rr"|
|Lesson:||PortugueseLingQ - Who is She?, Part 03|
Yes, meanwhile I've already noticed that some single "r" 's sound just like the "rr".
P.S.: Portuguese is really a nice language, and not very difficult if you already know some Spain and French. I'll certainly continue learning it....

For instance, in the portuguese word "agora" (now) - the "r" 's sound is similar to the english "r" in the word "rapids".
Most of the time, the final or initial "r" and the "rr" are pronounced like the Spanish "j", with less aspiration, or the initial "h" in German. However, in some regions, like in the South, you will always hear rolled r's and rr's.
The "r" between vowels sounds like the American English "d" in the word "body".
Thanks - that is interesting
.I am curious to develop the abillity to know where in Brazil the speakers might be from. The two readers hear have a different accent to some of the other recordings. Th H seems stronger than usual + a few other details Any idea where in Brazil they are from?
