This Saturday I'm supposed to make a big graduation speech at a program I have been going to for the last two years, and it is a big deal. But my problem is that I have a speech impedement* and I cannot pronounce my R's.
I was never refered to any speech therapist in school (i am currently in 8th grade) because i was to embarassed to say anything. but now as i grow older, i realize that i will eventually have to talk in front of people.
So my question is, how do you pronouce your R's? For me, its that when i pronounce the "R" sounds is i put the edges of my tounge (the back part of my tounge) one underneath my top molars in the back and then i finish off the r sound by moving my tounge similarly the way you do when you say the letter "O".
Does anyone think they can help me? Any diagrams, or VIDEOS, would be nice. And I would really appreciate it
