    Default to fix my rounded "rs" and my "ses" in pronunciation

    hi there

    recently I've been told by my teacher that when I am speaking I got some noticeable rounded "r" and "s". It might come from my spanish or german.. So I need some suggestion how to fix it. Since I need to pronouce well to be remarked an "A" in my presentation.

    my "r" is like german "r" and "s" is like spanish "s". I says "r and s" longer than it should to be.

    thnx for your concern

    With the S, if you are saying it Spanish-style, your tongue will be too far forward, so you'll have to get intothe habit of drawing it further back.
