    Теплый летний вечер, звонит труба, на жидкокристаллическом табло
    с подсветкой, наблюдаю время – двадцать два ноль два – отвечаю «да»,
    слышу голос Светки:
    «Ало, Жень, ты где, а?»

    There you go. One sentence. That should test the abilities of even the seasoned Russian learner.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    I recorded it so everyone can hear what a thick American accent sounds like. Please don't laugh too hard.

    EDIT: I updated the attachment. It's louder now.

    Well here it is! Please be honest and tell me seriously what you think. Don't think that because it is so bad you need to be nice to me, if you do that i'll never improve. How heavy is my accent? Any tips on how to improve?

    thank you so much for taking the time to do this for me!

    I've got to this in two parts becuase it's too big....

    Pretty good i think! I think maybe the p in вечер could be a bit stronger. Also the soft letters in двацать, ноль, жень sound a little too hard. But i have this problem too. Mostly because i just forget when i talk too fast. Also the слышу sounds like слишу.

    Алё, Жень, ты где? А? - no accent at all. About the rest, I'm afraid I could't catch much, for it was to weak, turn your amp up on ten, after all.
    That's funny, cos that guy on the tape presented by Dogboy182 imitates black rap pidgin, so maybe Americans don't even need to speak without an accent.


    To basurero
    not Жьен, but Жень. Can you see the difference? Hushing sounds don't need to be reduced to "с-с-с-".

    Does anyone know a good sentance to say which uses a good variety of sounds?

    ной - ноль

    остальное, в общем, без акцента

    Of the few Russians I know, one is a recent immigrant. (He came about 3 years ago.) He seems to think that I sound like a Russian who emigrated in youth, so that my accent was kinda corrupted. He says most Russians here have American accents when they speak Russian and Russian accents when they speak English.

    BlackMage,

    подьсветкой
    двадьцать

    They sounds soft and they should be hard. Everything else is good. Good job!

    I already wanted to record something, but I hadn't thought of a nice piece of text yet, when this thread started. So I thought I'd just record this sentence, too.
    Could you comment on my pronunciation as well? Thanks.

    "Аллё, Жень ты где, а?" I couldn't hear any accent. Yet the previous words are read a bit stumblingly. The first word, "теплый", is very indistinct, too.

    Yeah, I'm not going to bother with that, because my accent is way too American, and my recordings make me sound like a child of 5 years. Strange. But anyway, I was wondering if that was a real song? I'm not normally fond of rap, but anything in russian I'll subject myself to! If it's a song, what's it called, and who sings it?

    I can't make out any of the endings of any of the words....in fact, half of the words sounds smothered together. I can't hear the S either. I'm going to print this up and ask a russian to pronounce it for me word by word....I can barely say zhidkokrastallicheskom.
