The Letter "R"

Mark Complete

The pronunciation of the letter “R” is slightly different in Filipino than in English.

You produce the Filipino "R" sound by flicking your tongue off of the roof of your mouth to create a softer, "rolling" R sound. The result sounds much like the letter "R" said by someone speaking in Spanish.

Listen carefully for the difference in the examples below.
