    Short apartment description....

    У Вадима и Анны новая квартира. Вот фотографии их новой квартиры. Это их большая комната. Здесь синее кресло, диван и стол. У неё компьютер стоит на столике.

    It's good you're practicing reading, but you should really check on the accents.

    У ВадИма и Анны нОвая квартИра. Вот фотогрАфии их нОвой квартИры. Это их большАя кОмната. Здесь сИнее крЕсло, дивАн, и стОл. У неЁ компьЮтер стоИт на стОлике.

    Ok I will practice the accents you suggested and try to record again. I assume speaking with the correct stress/accents is something that only comes with much practice =)

    Thanks!

    You have a good pronunciation

    The main mistakes are:
    you pronounce большая as болшая and диван as дыван.

    Put more attention to palatalizing the consonants, ok?

    I gave it a go, but I'm a noob when it comes to pronunciation.

    У Вадима - make your [d] sound dental, not alveolar.
    Большой - it's your hard word. Ь is not just to beautify the writing, it softens the [л] sound.
    Кресло - don't pronounce [o] as if its accentuated, just reduce it.

    advice

    just say "bolieshoi" which will sound better than "ball-shoi"

    The stress is in the right place now except for one word стол which should have an "o" sound rather than an "a" sound. As for the pronunciation I can't judge as I'm no native speaker....

    BlackMage, I was right. You rock.

    Anthony, you sound monotonously and unnatural today.

    I've liked Blackmage's recording best of all. The other recodings are good too but what I especially liked about Blackmage's recording is that he pronounces all the sounds in a very clear way.. Good job, man! You surely rock!

    Thank you! And here I thought I was no good. (Actually, I still think I'm no good.)

    BlackMage, actually, frankly speaking it was just awful!
    Lol, that wasn't that bad, really, not all the words were pronounced perfect but on the whole it was pretty good.
