    someone to evaluate my pronunciation, please?

    I'm not even sure if i speak American or British english. Actually, it might just be a weird accent. Your feedback would be extremely helpful. Thank you for your time. https://youtu.be/Kgoit4MfsYA

    Welcome to the forum.

    Note my corrections above. Correct capitalisation and punctuation are vital in written English.

    I haven't had a chance to listen to your recording yet.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You need to work on your vowel sounds and intonation. However, speaking naturally, rather than reading a fairly difficult text, would give a more accurate picture of how you speak.

    Re: someone to evaluate my pronunciation, please?

    I concur about checking your vowels. You pronounce your final Rs, so I guess you're studying American pronunciation.

    When past forms end in -ed, the e is not pronounced and the d is pronounced like t. For example, "watched" is pronounced with the intimidating string of consonant sounds /tsht/. Don't be concerned if you can't manage all those sounds together, but do reduce the e to its shortest possible length.

    The vowel sounds are more important for comprehensibility than how you pronounce ​-ed.
    I am not a teacher.
