The pronunciation of the Spanish letter RR can be difficult for students. It is the same sound as the single R, but twice as long.
When a single R is at the beginning of a word, it is pronounced like RR.
In Spanish, RR was traditional considered a single letter. It’s very important to be aware of this when looking something up in pre-1994 Spanish dictionary, because words with RR were listed after words with R + any other letter. For example, carro was located after cartel.
