    Default Abh

    This sound file aims at "I want you know what I say", not "Have I spoken AmE well?" Because the first need for the speaker is to communicate or get information, it needs time to improve his pronunciation.

    Has the file sounded clearly?

    It sounds like 'yarum pass how ist' to me. I can't get it, I'm afraid. I've played it about twenty times but can't follow.

    Here's what I heard: a bumper harvest (invisible ink)
    I got the last word fist play and everything second. I wasn't sure about the middle word.

    Default Nice, thank you

    How many times have you spent this time before you got "harvest" and then got "bumper"(you hit it now)?

    I played it a couple, but having got the last word, I could predict the adjective.
