    Hello!

    I've recorded myself reading one paragraph (~30 sec). If you had time and willingness to listen to it, I'd be very interested in hearing your comments about my accent (American or British accent does it resemble (at least from afar) more :)). What are the typical mistakes?

    P.S. I've uploaded mp3-file using easy-share.com. It's located here:click here (click free download).

    Thanks beforehand!
