    Hello Nihlak,
    I'd like to help you. Please tell first me how you pronounce 'er' and 'are' and 'roar.' Secondly, when you pronounce these 3 words, tell me where the tip of your tongue is for each one. You can mail me at bdsenglishniche.com.
    best wishes

    I really want to help you to correct the pronunciation of "r". Please let me know what your mother language is. This is the key point what I can help you, because some of languages do not have some english sound, so they are very hard to pronounce these words if don't have a proper english spoken training.
