    Working on pronunciation / accent

    Hey everyone!

    Since I`m about to get a job where I`m going to speak to natives, I`ve decided to check my skills. I`m kinda out of practice, I still keep watching bbc \ youtube every day, can determine whether a speaker is british, american or not-native, but when it comes to trying myself, I sound pretty odd sometimes and cannot find out, how to train \ prepare my voice.

    What can be improved? Is there anything you didn`t get?

    You have an accent but I understood all of it. In link#2 check the pronunciation for the word "months".
