Do you have to be able to roll your r's to speak Spanish?

I am wanting to take up another language, and I already know French, so I was looking into Spanish. Do you need to be able to "roll your r’s" to speak Spanish properly? Because I think I am physically incapable.


  1. Don’t worry.Incidentally in French they roll the R too.However not as much as in Spanish.In German and in Dutch the R is rolled as well. In English we usually don’t.

  2. No not necessarly. I Speak Spanish fluently but I can’t roll my ‘r”s, but it sounds funny XD. I speak French fluently and I roll my ‘r’ but when I switch to Spanish, I can’t..
    People just say I have an accent.
