According to Speech Learning Model (Flege, 1987, 1992, 1995; Bohn &Flege, 1992), L2 phones can be classified into three categories, ‘new’, ‘similar’, and ‘identical’. Many studies have found that in the long run, ‘similar’ phones cause the most trouble for L2 learners. Generally, Spanish vowels are believed to have one-to-one correspondence with Korean, making them straight-forward to learn.
