:) 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 :) . Christophe.
