comment Can I learn to roll my R's?
I disagree about touching your front teeth with your tongue. That's not how I've done it, and I was explicitly told in high school Spanish that the tongue contacts the alveolar ridge when rolling the r. It's just behind the front upper teeth.

comment What does “lo” in “(no) lo es” refer to?
I'd agree with the stylistic purpose, but this doesn't answer the question of what in the sentence "lo" refers to.

comment What does “lo” in “(no) lo es” refer to?
In English, we could condense "money isn't everything" into "it isn't everything" assuming context tells us what "it" is. In Spanish, we'd condense "el dinero no es todo" to "no es todo" because that conjugation of the infinitive ser implies literally means "it is". Spanish verb conjugations are different for I/you/he-she-it/they/we/etc, so we don't need to specify the pronoun.

comment What does “lo” in “(no) lo es” refer to?
@hippietrail: lo is not strictly necessary. Both "te doy el dinero" and "te lo doy el dinero" are correct. It is redundant, to an extent, yes, but I think it's a stylistic thing.
