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”.

The Easter Bunny -- Coloring eggs, baskets, and the Easter bunny are all a part of the Easter tradition in the U.S., among other things. In the word "bunny" the last letter "y" in the spelling represents the "ee" sound. Some nonnative speakers, such as Russian speakers, pronounce the final "ee" sound more like a lax "i". Make sure your tongue is high against the roof of your mouth, smile, and make the sound long like the name of the letter "e".
