    Angry how to overcome problems in pronouncing consonants?

    I'm from Vietnam. I often substitute some English consonants with similar Vietnamese sounds. How can I overcome this problem?
    Furthermore, I also have difficulties with final consonants and consonant clusters. I often omit them or add an extra vowel. What should I do?
    Finally, could you tell me how to practise using linking and assimilation?
    Thank you!!!

    Blacknomi's right- connect by merging words instead of adding vowels. We add consonants- law & order, but not by adding vowels much.
