    Question Trying to learn JPN "R/L": Wwhich one am I trying to say?

    I'm still struggling to learn the Japanese "R/L" sound.
    There's all that stuff with tongue rolling and all, but that's not my main question today.

    The certain thing that's bothered me for a while now that some tutorials do not mention is whether I (as an EN speaker) should be attempting to say R or L or something else entirely when practicing my Japanese "R/L"s sounds

    (as other tutorials mention, some hybrid between D and L because the JPN L/R is almost one and the same unique L/R)

    What should I be trying going for?

    Update: Misunderstood. Ancer's brain is no in a good shape after an exam.

    Some people say it in R and sometimes L. It might not be mentioned due to the fact that some japanese people uses L instead of R.

    Ancer's probably not good advice of the day is: Do not worry, just pronounce it the way you want

    It depends on your native tongue, but just try to pronounce R, I'd say. Purposely pronouncing L may make you sound like a weeb. It's not like the vagueness is inherent in all spoken words either. Some words seem to have solid-R pronunciation almost uniformly. This article (or the links and references therein) may be useful:
