    Question Feedback is needed, I'm working on improving my American English pronunciation

    Hey guys! I live in California, but originally from Russia. So sure thing, I have a strong accent that people identify right away, and what they hear is like French, English or Russian accents combined. I want to reduce my accent both in my pronunciation and in my intonation, I started with practicing A sound in a word "cat", "animal" and "all". I need feedback from you guys to improve it
    Practicing A sound like in a word "cat": https://youtu.be/VFVeT0SbAM8
    Practicing A sound like in a word "animal": https://youtu.be/IbFUdXisiPk
    Practicing A sound like in a word "all": https://youtu.be/KKVLPM25pCU
    Thanks!

    Your short a sound is fine. Your problems are in more complex sounds to me, though I am not an AmE speaker.
