Saying the letter L

by John
(United Kingdom)

Hi guys

Right so basically whenever I pronounce the letter l, I sort of make a clinking sound if I don't open my mouth up wide ? Anyone else get this ? If I open it up wide I don't really get it, but then it's quite awkward to do that while speaking. I find it especially difficult to say the words lead, league, clear, clearly.
