    She also has issues with her pronunciation. Is she the one telling you that you must speak like a Brit?

    I thought her pronunciation was quite good for a non-native speaker. One error is that she mispronounces pronunciation in a way that many native speakers do: she pronounces it as if it were spelled "pronounciation".
    I am not a teacher.

    Her pronunciation is very close to British RP. She has only a very slightly detectable foreign accent.

    She can improve her pronunciation of the word "even".

    Hi!
    Please someone listen to my recordings!
    I've done a lot of work!
    Do I sound a little bit better or not?

    That is definitely an improvement, and a pretty good job. You heeded the earlier suggestions, especially slowing your speech. Some sounds, both vowels and consonants, are a little bit off, as is the intonation. You are nowhere close to passing for a native speaker but you are pretty clear and intelligible. Good work.

    Slow down a bit and try to leave some boundaries between words. Post below.
