What's up with the pronunciation of "L"?

From my experience, I think that some people get it and others don't. I have had students that could come to pretty good pronunciation. Others, no matter how much you try to get them to make the right sounds, they just never get it. Maybe it's hotwired in there somewhere.

An interesting website on phonics etc. Based on reading primers from the 1800s

I'm quite fond of rai-rai-rai. Ending on a consonant just seems to be impossible.
