I‘ve been struggling with ö and ü but after practice I can eventually pronounce them. But I find myself unable to identify that ‚ü‘ sound in words such as ‚Bürger‘ ‚Mitbürger’ and sometimes even ‚für‘. What I hear is a sound similar to ‚ur‘ as in ‚Natur‘, but not exactly the same.

So is it accents or ‚ür‘ pronounced differently from ‚ü—r‘?

P.S. My question might seem a little hard to understand but I hope you get it. :)
