They don't seem to be able to reproduce the sounds.
I've searched this forum with the keywords "pronunciation teaching methods" and found very little.
I've heard that listening to native speakers is a good way for them to learn the new English phonemes. But if they have no English-speaking friends, is it enough for them to listen to the radio and TV? Should I burn them CDs of myself reciting paragraphs containing the target phonemes?
What are your (wise) suggestions?
