    Question What you think about my accent?

    Hello, I'm new here ! I've been studying English for 1 year more os less, but I didnt care much about pronunciation at the begining... So now I'm trying to improove it. I want to know what other people would think about my accent. My friends say I sound a little weird

    Hi:

    On the whole I think your accent is pretty good. You don't sound at all like a native speaker, but everyone will understand everything you say. One mistake you make consistently is to pronounce the "e" in the ending "ed". You give it a schwa, but in fact it is completely silent.

    Having said that, I have no clue where you are from.

    Hey, thanks for answering back. I'm from Brazil, but I don't think I have a Brazilian accent, so it'd be hard to guess where I'm from even for Portuguese speakers.
    I've never noticed that mistake you said! Thanks for letting me know :)
