We all know that to teach pronunciation ELE is important to consider the learner's L1, but what is even more important is the variety of L1 of the learner, his accent in that language.
In my paper will discuss how speakers of different parts of the UK and Ireland have different problems when learning the pronunciation of Castilian, showing the need to move away from the traditional position in which it is assumed that all English speakers will the same problems when pronouncing the sounds of Spanish.
Finally, we give some oral exercises for speakers of different dialect regions of the United Kingdom and Ireland, in order to meet the particular needs that speakers of each dialect region presented.
