adaarmada 29 Dec 2016 #1I moved to America when I was 5 and I'm fluent as hell in English and while my Polish may be rather basic and elementary, I can speak it pretty well aside from this SAD and unfortunate reality. Apparently this is an issue I've had since I was a child. My parents just gave up after a while and just accepted that it's something I was having a very difficult time with. I always wanted to speak better but this inability frankly makes me want to cry. It makes me so upset. I'm dating someone now who is Polish and I couldn't be happier but my inability to pronounce **** correctly is honestly what has held me back from visiting home in ten years. I need help. How I can practice this sound with American or Spanish words? I can't express how much embarrassment I have dealt with as a child as a result of this.
