Reviewer Comments:

This resource is a paper describing some challenges in teaching English to non native speakers. The paper provides information about some specific pronunciation difficulties encountered. For example, both “minimal pairs” (pin/bin or cut/cat) and frickative sounds (/sh/ /th/) are discussed. However, no suggestions for teaching are offered. The paper itself appears to be written by a non native speaker, as there are some grammatical errors.
