    my NATURAL accent

    I'd like to know what you think of my natural accent

    Here is a recording I made of myself reading some sentances (posted here somewhere) for the first time. That is, I didn't practice a million times before sending it, so it probably sounds much crappier. Yes I know I sound like a retard reading them so slowly and screwing up all the time but что делать?/ Some of the stress is probably wrong and I know I said поверить instead of проверить and обЫдно but I couldn't go back and change it, you see! I'm mainly worried about pronunciation

    Except for some wrong vowels and some wrong stresses, it was very, very good. Still, I wonder why you are whispering!

    basurero, you should practice speaking with native russians, then your vowel and stress problems will disappear very fast. I dont know how much exposure you get with the native speakers but if not a lot, then you're doing very well. Last 3 sentances were close to perfect.

    And SPEAK UP..dont whisper

    О! Услышала предложения из своего поста! А твое произношение не так уж и плохо, я думаю, мое английское не лучше, хотя я уже давно его изучаю. Here are my corrections.

    Питья
    Интересуешься
    Нужными (у тебя ненужными)

    И следи за л и ль.
