TT4BS - the r sound

In this edition of TongueTwisting4BetterSpeech (TT4BS), we're practicing the r sound. Keep in mind that when making this sound, your tongue should not touch anything in your mouth.

Practice these words first:
Rain, rear, rest, roast, rod
Bear, tear, boar, tore, floor
Arrow, borrow, tomorrow, pirate, arrest

To practice the tongue twister, start slow and focus on the sound. Then say the sentence faster 3 times as you get used to it.
Ryan read stories of horses that ran on roads that tore across forests while lions roared and eagles soared.
