    carter personifies the values of self-reliance and hardwork.

    This is BrE accent. It took a while to figure out whether it is carter or concept.

    You are right. The answer is Carter personifies the values of self-reliance and hard work. Actually this audio is from Longman Dictionary CD, I'd like to know would you speak like this style in your daily life? What's the technique to listen it and speak it?

    I don't hear British accent here. So, I am not used to listening to such an accent, let alone talking like that. Focus on one accent if you are interested in speaking: either BrE or General AmE. Otherwise, you end up by being distracted.
