english/phonlogy

I need help in a project.
I'm teaching a group of german students and I have noticed they say things like 'dis' and 'lai' instead of 'this' and 'lie'.
I should identify the phonology problem and explain it precisely what it is.
Please, can someone give me an answer to it. Thanks so much!
