    Default Re: Typical errors in pronounciation for ESL

    Hi!
    I think that Spanish students make mistakes when they have to pronounce sounds they don't have in their first language.

    e.g. think (th), singing (ng), decision (sion), job (j).

    Apart from that, it's very difficult to copy the rhythm.
