    Two things here:

    the word English would be quite OK if you made the L sound like L. Instead the person said "Engrish". A slip of the tongue?

    "grammar" this time the "r" at the end is way overaccentuated. The "R" sound should be there but in a very subtle way.

    Regarding grammar

    My dictionaries label no "r" in the phonetic symbol of the word grammar:

    Re: Regarding grammar

    Where are these files coming from? These aren't native speaker files.

    Hmm, keep it a secret?

    Dear Tdol,

    You are a native English speaker. Why not record your sound and upload?

    I'd thank you so much if you do so.
