Wow! The "R" sound is brutally difficult! When we Japanese say "Rip Van Wrinkle," it might sound like "Lip bun winkle" to native English speakers. I guess Japanese people are generally so lazy that they don't try to move their lips so briskly except for kissing. Instead of that, we're very good at chuckling laugh.

I know that Japanese have difficulty saying these sounds. However, I agree that this can be practiced and learned eventually. You say that Japanese are very good at chuckling laugh and kissing? That sounds so funny. Why is that so? Have you tried pronouncing the R sound like the teacher from the video?

Well, according to a linguist, foods that a race usually takes have been making the framework of its jaw for a long, long time, and then that framework has affected jawbreaking sounds and easily pronouceable sounds. I suppose Japanese ancestors mainly liked soft foods that don't require them to chew. Therefore, we're bad at moving our lips vividly. Do you agree with this opinion?

Oh, yes, of course. Every nation had different possibilities when it comes to language. I understand you completely. Is there any other sound that you have difficulties pronouncing?

Oh, yes, of course. I have a lot. For example, I can hardly discern S sound and TH sound. By the way, could you please show me the ropes how to make out R sound and L sound?
