    That's not bad. At least everything is correct and understandable.

    I still can't tell the difference between ы/и. I wonder if there's anything on this forum about that...

    If you speak well but with an accent all the Russian women will think your accent is exotic and sexy.

    Очень хорошо! Даже не знаю, к чему придраться. Хорошее произношение с приятным акцентом.

    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....

    Your accent is not thick at all and I am not even sure if it sounds that much American... ! Great job!

    Could you comment on my pronunciation as well? Thanks.
    It's great! I don't understand how you do this guys! Yes, I can hear some accent, but not in every word, and it is not strong and not distracting at all!.

    How do you know that? Do you think that Russian women like men speaking Russian with an accent?

    Well, American women have a thing for guys with accents, so I merely applied similar logic to Russian women. (Surely a mistake on my part, as Russian and American women have very little in common.)

    I've never been to the States, so I didn't know that American women have a thing for guys with accents. I don't think you made any mistake in applying the same logic to Russian women. It's sometimes very hard to tell the difference between them.

    Especially true of Russian women who have limited funds compared to those of American women.

    all the Russian women could go to any market and get out with a lot of guys with money and accents. From the USA (United States of Azerbaijan) and FRG (Federal Republic of Georgia)

    Thank you for the comments. Are there any specific things that I should work on (apart from just speaking more often so I will stumble less)?
