In American English, the “r” sound is made with the tongue still and not touching the roof of the mouth. Think of a dog growling, “errr”. In the word “spring”, it can help to stretch out the word in practicing this sound, as in “sperring”.

Surf the In(t)ernet - When the "t" sound comes after the "n" sound, it is often not pronounced. It becomes a silent "t". The word "Internet" is often spoken as "Innernet". The silent "t" is especially common in phrases (such as San(t)a Claus), contractions (such as "didn('t) it"), and verbs (such as "wan(t)ed").
