    Yes please.
    I would like to know how this would sound by a native Russian speaker.

    I can hear a Russian/Ukrainian accent in your recording. I'll probably make an attempt to record me saying that phrase a bit later.

    You're not shy, gromozeka!

    I know I do have an accent but is it so obvious Russian/Ukranian?

    Yes, it's obvious. Let's see what native speakers will say...

    I think Kwatts wanted the phrases in Russian... He just made a typo...

    Here's my try. Since kwatts asked a native Russian to record these sentences I thought that I should speak with a mild Russian accent...

    But yes, you DO have an accent... but not that bad though! I was surprised, it doesn't sound very Russian!

    It's late in Moscow now. My parents and my sister are fast asleep now! If I speak louder they'll come to my room and kill me

    Just turn the volume up, that's what I did. You have an accent, but it's pretty good. I think it sounds Russian but it's not a strong accent. Молодец.

    Thanks a million gRomoZeka and ReDSanchous.

    You both have accents, but overall you guys sound great!

    I think the main problem is the i in live and without.
    It sounds like an и rather than the English i.

    Also the "th" doesn't sound quite right.

    It is difficult to explain but I will try to record myself later so you can hear.
