    Actually the worst things I ate were in a posh hotel - a huge garlic clove and a massive olive. Fished them out of jars, they were both almost completely raw. I think the olive had been picked out the tree that afternoon.

    @PazJohnMitch - that explains a lot.

    The Chinese can pronounce Rs and Ls perfectly fine. They appear frequently in their language.

    They also have a 6th vowel which is similar to 'oo' and they stack vowels to make a range of various sounds. The are also 3 sounds that sound like a J to me and another 3 that sound likes Sh.

    The only sound in the English language I have found Chinese people struggle with is 'th'.

    The problem that the Chinese have with R&L is that the Chinese equivalents of both sound like a combination of both, if you are still in China, try and get someone to say 'squirrel', hours of fun. Although different dialects have different problems so it doesn't apply to the whole of China.

    The /j/ & /zh/ thing and the /ch/ & /q/ thing are difficult to pick out.
