    Please listen to the recording below and tell me what you think of my pronunciation .
    It is my first trial to speak in a free way.I know my Egyptian Accent is so clear, but next time I will do my best to improve it.

    I'm afraid your accent is rather heavy. The thing I could understand best was witch. However, much of it was unclear.

    I'd like to advise you to be more careful with the pronunciation of "b", "p" and "th".

    Re: Macbeth Act one..What do you think of my speaking?

    As pointed out above, there are several areas that need a lot of work on your part. I strongly advise you to focus on one or two at a time, no more.

    For example, take a look at the following video to learn the correct pronunciation of θ and
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5LO0hHGfQg

    The only thing I'll add to that guy's instruction, is that when you're practising , imagine your larynx as a car engine that is switched on! With θ, the engine is off; you just blow air through your teeth.

    After some practice, post a recording of you reading exercise #3 in the following link.

    I'm sorry to say this, but you're wasting your time. You need to get the basics of pronunciation right first.
