    You have a marked French accent, but that doesn't make your English difficult to understand- and many English speakers will like it. Your vowels can be to long ('to') or different ('language') and you pronounce 'really' with a /w/ sound at the beginning a couple of times, but none of this should be much of a problem for comprehension.

    I am a Brazilian guy and, as a foreign speaker, it's very hard to deal with some accents. In your case, it's totally clear and understandable to me. Some small problems are already highlighted by Tdol, although these problems, as I said, are small and do not prevent us from understanding what you are saying. Good job!
