    Default please check my pronunciation

    Hello!

    Now I'm retelling a text extract and I'd be glad if you check my pronunciation. I'm not sure if my intonation is correct. Thanks a lot!

    Her career is older than most of her fans, and some may say that, now in her fifties, it's time she slowed down and left the stage to younger performers. But the truth is that she still puts on an amazing show, and her tours continue to sell out.

    Your /h/ and vowel sounds need a bit of work, but the pronunciation is clear enough to follow easily enough.

    Your pronunciation of the sounds of English seem OK.
    To improve, you can work on:
    • linking sounds - joining words together smoothly
    • sentence stress and rhythm
    • intonation
