    Question I read a part from the "Fight Club". What do you think about my accent?

    I know it's long so you won't be able to pinpoint all the mistakes I've made. I'd just like to hear your overall opinion about my pronunciation.
    I know I mumbled a lot, especially S endings and also some vowels. I stumbled a couple of times and had a hard misfire on some words, like on "really".
    But other than that, what do you think overall? Maybe there's something that persists throughout the whole recording (if you do listen to it fully), like a wrong vowel pronunciation? It would be helpful to know this to fix it in the future.

    I think you tried to read it too fast, and that was the cause of some stumbling. I found it mostly understandable though, and that's the main thing. I guess you are learning American English, since some of your Ts sound like Ds (or flaps).

    Your accent is excellent. You hardly sound Russian at all. I have a lot of Russian-immigrant relatives so I know what the accent sounds like.

    You do need to work on your delivery and articulation.
