    What words am I pronouncing wrongly?

    I selected words that give me a hard time. Which of them were pronounced incorrectly?

    I think that your stress is something you could work on rather than thinking your sounds are wrong.

    Thank you, teacher. By stress do you mean the intonation in my utterances? Or syllables in single words?

    It's not clear to me what the difference between pronounciation and stress is.

    Putting the stress on the wrong syllable is one way in which someone might mispronounce a word.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Your "h" sounds are too rough, sounding kind of like "ch" in German "loch". It also sounded like you were aspirating the "t" in "stuff": it should be unaspirated.
