    L's are mean to me...why?? it sounds like i have a lot of spit in my mouth or something when saying those words. please help

    I am very surprised at having found out [from your personal profile] that your first language is English . How can that be possible ? And you still have problems with the pronounciation of the English words? Then you need specialised dictionaries in words pronunciation [sites specialised in phonetics and phonology]

    All the best,
