    First of all, you have to have a clear idea of what causes them difficulty.- Which sounds do you find they have trouble with? Can you record them? If you record them and then they can hear what they say and what we say, then it can help show them the difference.

    Here are some sites dealing with speaking and pronunciation:

    Are they listening to much English:

    Usually the goal is to eliminate the accent, not to improve it. :wink:
