    How's my accent?

    Can you give me an opinion about it ? Also where do you think I'm from?

    The recording of your voice is not audible (cannot be heard by a listener).

    I suppose you may be Polish, because your accent is similar to mine when I speak English ;)

    Re: How's my accent?

    Hello.

    "In 1830, only a few miles away from what is now the great city of Cincinnati, Ohio, lay a huge and almost endless forest [...]"

    You don't seem to pronounce the 'h' in 'Ohio' and 'huge'. Is it because of the influence from your mother tongue?
    Your English is clear and easy to catch.

    I'd guess Polish/Czech/something like that.

    It's very easy to understand you. I'd say Eastern Europe but I couldn't be more specific.
    Please correct your profile information now.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: How's my accent?

    I understood everything but your H seems mute to me in Huge and Ohio words.

    Very good pronunciation. continue like that and you will not have problems but always try to improve yourself.

    Bye.
