Nothing difficult in nasal vowels :) .
I'm totally lost on tones, pharyngeals consonnants (as in Arabic), ejectives,
implosives, and clicks. I can produce retroflex consonnants and lateral
fricatives in isolations, but it's very difficult for me to put them in a word.
The voiced velar fricative is still difficult for me (while the voiceless one is
no problem, thanks to 8 years of Spanish lessons :) ). Rounded front vowels are
no problem :) (French has its advantages) and I'm getting better and better at
unrounded back vowels, though it's not really good yet :) .
