    This is not the best text to judge you on, Otti76. Because it's the lyric to a song, it means you're reading it in a funny way. I don't think you normally speak like that.

    Try reading something that isn't a song lyric, or better yet, just try speaking naturally and unplanned. Tell us what you can see from your window or something like that.

    Note my corrections above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    To me you sound British, but with Ireland's stronger R's.

    You do not sound Ukrainian. Or American.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
