I hope you can help me. I am taking an introductory Russian language course. I am having trouble figuring out exactly how to roll an r. The Russian 'p' is a trilled r sound and I can not figure out the technique.

Are there any exercises or hints that you could give me? Today my daughter showed me that she can do this, so I'll be quizzing her tonight and watching carefully where she places her tougue, but other than that I'm feeling helpless!

Thanks for your time.
