Your pronunciation is very good. I had to look at your profile to see where you are from.

Your pronunciation of the word "meals" sounds like "mells", and I couldn't make out the word that preceded "chicken".

Hello!
Thanks for your comments and suggestion. I do want to try again, so I made a different recording. What do you think?

Google Drive would send you my email address to request access to your file. Please find another way to share it.

- You say "thought I might" a little too fast.
- The "v" in "favourite" sounds a little like a "w".

You seem to be trying to pronounce words in a British way. However, you sometimes use 'r-coloring' - when you say "culture", for example. It's probably because of the influence of your first language.

Be careful with 'r' sounds, and your pronunciation will get much better, I'm sure.

Keep up the good work!

:-D:up:

I think she's saying "This time I thought I('d) like (to) talk about ..."

(Edit)I was wrong. I'm sorry, teechar. I need to brush up my listening comprehension skills.:oops:

I was actually saying "I thought I might" :)
