Two that I can think of! We don't hear them in English because they don't get used to indicate different meanings ... but if you listen closely to the English word "little", you'll hear a "light L" at the start and a "dark L" at the end. Magic!
To my ears, they only use the light version in French. Which one is used in Hebrew, or is there a third variation?
PS: Who are you calling American? I'm a happy South African, I am!
