    Check my pronunciation, please

    I decided to record a sample of a text which was placed by rockzmom about rainbow.
    Please, listen and tell me what drawbacks I have in my pronunciation:
    Яндекс.Народ - here is my recording.
    Thanks.

    I had to play it several times.

    sunlight one word, one stress
    raindrops vowel /o/ should be more /a/ like
    theyact pronounce as if one word stressed on last syllable
    prism прызм not призм
    form in AmE the /r/ is clearer. Are you trying for BrE?

    horizon харАЙзн

    and its two ends __? horizon «-- did not understand.

    Я читаю в британском произношении, потому что меня так учили, и по-другому не могу. Спасибо.
    Вот текст: "When the sunlight strikes raindrops in the air, they act as a prism and form a rainbow. The rainbow is a division of white light into many beautiful colors. These take the shape of a long round arch, with its path high above, and its two ends apparently beyond the horizon."
