    Thumbs up What does my accent sound ?

    I'm an upper intermediate student in Iran. My teacher says my accent is like Irish or Ukraine people and also I have problem with pronunciation. What can I do to improve them. I send a record of my voice about deja vu. Would u please listen to it and comment on ?
    ( And please be honest about everything )

    Hi, Kamran!

    I'm an American. You don't sound Irish to me!

    Your pronunciation is pretty good and will improve with practice. Your inflections are excellent. Some thoughts:

    - Your Rs are much harder than British and slightly harder than American. That might be why your teach says you sound Ukrainian.

    - An easy thing to fix might be your Vs, like in event. You're pronouncing them like the English W. Just make an F while humming!

    I'm sure others will have more suggestions for you. Keep up the good work!
