Spoken English :Some problems encountered.

Hello, it would be  interesting to know how one can correct  the  contamination of  English  by  the  MT sounds.Every  state  in  India  has its  own language. For example, in the  state  of  Kerala  we  speak  Malayalam,  and  the  Malayalees  have a defenite  problem with  their O's, minimal  pairs to name a few. Despite identifying and  correcting  the  faulty  'place  and  manner  'of enunciation, I have not been able to get my trainees  to  imbibe  the correction  and  apply  it  in  their  speech.
