    To me (a Brit) you just sound American. There's a bit of Valley Girl questioning intonation at the end of some of your declarative sentences. I very occasionally detected a little hint of something Hispanic but not much.
    The questioning intonation is something I've been working on getting rid of. Thank you for the tips on correcting the sentence in my original post! I didn't realize the importance of writing in complete sentences.

    Well, it's just that you sound like my Brazilian friend, who now lives in the U.S. She speaks very good English like you.
