"Se te" help please :)

I would appreciate your help please I was going through the FSI Basic Course lesson 47 and I came across something that I can't explain and was hoping one of you kind folks could help me
The sentence is as follows;
"sólo en cuanto a la pronunciación se te puede poner a veces algún reparo."
(i.e. Only in regard to pronunciation can one sometimes make an occasional criticism

I understand "se te" when used like this..."se te perdieron las llaves" or "se te cayó el lapiz" etc. (i.e. accidental episodes like losing something or something falling on you etc.). The above senstence would have made sense to me if "se puede" was used which I'd read as "one can" (impersonal). I've never seen "se te" used in this fashion...Any help much appreciated
