    Re: About my English accent

    American accent eh? That's not bad for a non-native speaker.

    The pronounciation of some of the words could be better:

    everyone, success, understand, aim, share, sweetness

    Let's hear from the native speakers.

    not a teacher

    Congratulations iZicci!
    I am not a native speaker but I guess my judgment has some value here because our native tongues are rather different. I could understand almost everything, but there are some words ... I don't know if the problem was my hearing or your pronunciation. That is what I could understand:

    Hello everyone!
    I'm so excited to speak English here.
    Well, if you can hear me and understand what I am talking about, then please tell me that you want to join me because we can chat with each other and so improve our own English, our spoken English together.
    It is absolutely such a great idea, isn't it?
    You know we all want to live a happy life but how can we make it?
    Have you tried hundreds of times, always thrilled and you just (????), you just want to give up now? Come on.
    We still have the choice to change and we can turn it into a good situation.
    So do feel the hope that you will live a better life in the future?
    We shall take plenty of practice every morning, every night and no stop.


    Please remember that no sacrifice no victory.
    (????) we need to get well prepared for long road.
    As long as we have an aim (????) determination.
    So please make up your mind and let's move out together
    (????) assure us witness of victory.
    I'm sure. Thanks.

    Just curious....How/where did you acquire your American accent from?

    I was able to catch those words you missed though they were not very clearly pronounced. I guess it takes a Chinese to fully understand another Chinese. Here you are.

    Almost like that.

    1. In order to experience the joy of success, we need to get well prepared for a long road.

    2.As long as we have an aim, nothing is gonna change our determination.

    3.You just wanna give up now?

    4.We shall take pains to practise.

    5.We still have the chance to change.

    Thank you two!

    Very nice.
    I'm not sure I like 'wanna' and 'bedder', but your accent is much more understandable than a lot of Chinese students I've met studying here in Australia.
