    I would like to have my English accent evaluated based on the attached sample of my speech.
    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum.

    It's unusual for us to be asked to evaluate a native speaker's accent. May I ask why you need/want this done? You didn't attach a link to the sample, by the way.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: ACCENT EVALUATION

    If you load a recording of your speech to something like YouTube or Vocaroo, people will listen to it and comment. You haven't included a recording. Please record yourself speaking, not reading a written text aloud.

    Your accent is fine, though your speech seems a little slow.

    Re: ACCENT EVALUATION

    Thanks for your answer, I would like know if my accent sounds native and what part of North America it traces from.

    Re: ACCENT EVALUATION

    Your profile shows that you are a native speaker of American English. Why do you think your accent wouldn't sound native? Surely you know which part of the USA you're from.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'll leave that to the American speakers to answer- I speak British English.

    Re: ACCENT EVALUATION

    If you did not know that I am an American native speaker, would you still be able to tell if my accent is American native or not.
    Please listen to my speech sample and tell me, thanks
    Here is the vocaroo link below to listen to it.

    Re: ACCENT EVALUATION

    To me, you sound nothing like a native speaker in this recording. Your phrasing/grammar doesn't sound entirely native either, so that might add to the impression.
