    Default Help with pronounciation

    Hello,

    could you evaluate my pronunciation (pronunciation mistakes, intonation etc.), please? Maybe you can even guess where I'm from?

    Thank you very much in advance

    We wouldn't have to guess where you're from if your profile was correct. Are you quite sure that you are an Abkhazian speaker, born in Botswana and currently in Andorra? To add to the confusion, your IP address(es) show that you are in Dublin and Hanover.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Italy? It sounds like you've lived in Ireland for a while, at least that's what I get from the way you pronounce "school", "regularly" and "improve". Also, your r's, for example in "learn" are very pronouced, which is also a characteristic of Irish English. Your pronunciation of "pronunciation", however, sounds very foreign. On the whole it's quite good and you have nothing to worry about.

    Nearly six hours after ems drew attention to triubo's strange profile, it has not been changed. I am therefore closing this thread.
