    It sounds very good to me- easy to follow and pretty natural.

    I agree with Tdol about your accent.

    Please note my corrections to your post above. Your first sentence wasn't a question so a question mark was inappropriate. Remember to start every sentence with a capital letter and that we don't put a space before a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark. End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark, even a sentence as short as "Thanks".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
