    Default What about accent?

    Hi everyone! Can you listen to this audiorecord (this is preface of Mark Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer) and say do I have any accent? And if I have one then what accent is this? Is it strong?

    Default Re: What about accent?

    You certainly have an accent. It is very clear from your pronunciation, your stress and your pauses etc that you are not a native speaker. I have purposely not looked at your member profile and I would guess that you are either from Asia (Japan, Korea, Thailand) or somewhere in the area of Russia or the Baltic States.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
