When attempting to produce it, I move my tongue to the top-left back teeth where I make a sound which resembles a drowned out [d͡z]. If I misplace my tongue here, this devolves into a trilled [r].
What am I doing wrong here, what is the proper technique here for the sound?

  • I have accepted the edit. The question now asks about how to learn to make a particular sound rather than about the characteristics of a particular language.
