do the french ever roll the tongue along with the throat with certain words containing the letter R.?
For example " Fevrier" seems to sound like a tongue roll along with the throat, but maybe that's just the AI translation of Duolingo and google translator. Je ne sais pas!
I just checked forvo . com for a pronunciation of "Fevrier" and it does indeed sound like the tongue is involved. it doesn't have the same throat pronunciation involved like Tres or Mercredi

No. We don't roll the R in France. But for sure in Spain they do it. I live close this country.
About Duolingo, maybe they asked a non native speaker to pronounce it. I checked on google with the word ' Février ' and from me ( native French), the R is not rolled.

No. The French R is pronounced in the throat rather than the tongue flapping in the front of the mouth as in Spanish.
