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

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