    Re: My accent

    You should work on your intonation- you have a tendency to overstress certain sounds so that they 'jump' out at the listener, which can make it more difficult for people to follow.

    Also, try recording yourself just speaking- reading a text is not a natural act, so it makes for a less natural recording.
