i'm starting to learn spanish on my own and i have a couple of questions. (btw i'm canadian and anglophone, and i speak quebec french as a second language.)
1. i can't roll my R's. but i found out that in some dialects people don't roll their R's. what a recognizable/natural sound i can make instead? if you have youtube links or something, i'd be forever grateful. i haven't been able to find this stuff on google.
2. do most spanish speakers understand most dialects? is there a standard? do i need to be considering dialect when i pick out a grammar book?
3. for people who know french and spanish, do you have trouble keeping them straight?
