At d'Witte Leli it seems that students of English whose native language is not Dutch experience greater difficulties in acquiring a sufficient oral proficiency than students whose lan-guage is Dutch. A study of some Turkish and Moroccan students suggests that they have several characteristic problems, both in the field of pronunciation and in that of vocabulary and syntax; the correct realization of the fortis "th" seems very difficult for them, their pitch range tends to be restricted, they frequently fail to provide the correct complementation of the verb and often leave out definite articles where they should be used. No attempts to explain and remedy these pro-blems systematically have been made but in some cases good results were obtained when the students' attitude towards the English language had become more positive.
