How to pronounce /l/ and /r/ after a vowel

Today in class I taught a brief lesson on the pronunciation of /l/ and /r/.  I focused on those mistakes that the students in my class tended to make.  The Chinese-speaking students in my class have problems with /l/ after a vowel, so they often pronounced “milk” as “miwk”.  In addition, students from certain parts of southern China also mix up /l/ and /n/, so they may mix up “low” and “no”.
