An Interlanguage Explorer – more possibly British - has found that Arab students have 23 common pronunciation problems.
See the full list here: http://www.btinternet.com/~ted.power/l1all.html
For more common pronunciation problems that other learners from other language backgrounds have, see Ted’s website http://www.btinternet.com/~ted.power/.
I would appreciate inlaying this post with any critical comments.

Thanks for the correction RED5.
Actually, both edited links do not parallel with their descriptions.
The first link of the full list of pronunciation problems that Arab learners have, unfortunately isn’t the right one anymore.
Moreover, the second link does not lead, anymore, to the page of other common pronunciation problems of other learners from other language backgrounds . Instead, it takes surfers to somewhere else, which is a genuine part of Ted’s website as well.
Anyway, the correct links leading to the right destinations, as I meant them are..
- A list of pronunciation problem that Arab learners have.
English pronunciation practice for Arabic speakers
- A list n pronunciation problems that other learners have.
English pronunciation: common errors made by most language backgrounds
- Source, Ted Power website.

Sorry for the annoyance.
