Just stop worrying and concentrate on other things. R used to be rolled practically(?) everywhere in Europe until a new style came up in Paris a few centuries ago and spread over the continent from there. In the German-speaking area the current situation is chaotic. You can choose between many totally different pronunciations of r that are all considered ...

Actually no, but lots of Germans pronounce "ist" without the "t" at the end.Generally there is absolutely no difference. You can guess the meaning from the context like Er ist/isst ein Kind. Here it is clear that it has to be "ist". Er ist/isst eine Suppe. Now it is "isst", because usually you can't be a soup :D
