    Judge my accent!

    English is a language that I learned on my own. These are few audio-tapes of random paragraphs I read online. Please do judge my accent, and give me feedback on it! What main areas should I focus on improving? What can I do to speak the language more fluently, and such. Thanks!
    The paragraph I am reading in the audio-tape is : "My designed arcade boots an inheritance. His grandfather censors the complex mount. A baffled power bucks in the convict. When will a cousin pick a registered expertise?"

    Second paragraph : "A rare clinic contrives a caffeine. A famous chemistry despairs without the quibble. My plastered ethic returns across the genetics. How can the thorough barrel decline?"

    Thank you, and have a wonderful day!

    * I am fully aware that I misspelled Caffeine and Register. I was tired when I recorded this tape.

    Re: Judge my accent!

    Reading sentences that don't make much sense, contain grammar errors and don't follow on is not a good way to record your spoken English. Could just put up a recording of your talking, not reading. For instance, just tell us about what you did yesterday or something. Things like intonation will sound more natural and the results will be easier to understand and comment on.

    Re: Judge my accent!

    If I didn't look at the sentences, I would have no idea what you were saying. Try reading a passage from a reputable English newspapers.
