Hello, mk—and welcome to English Forums.

Basically, your English is clear and quite understandable, so you shouldn't worry overmuch about your pronunciation. Like many Chinese speakers of English, you have difficulty producing some ending consonant sounds (the [eks] of 'complex', the [t] of 'just' & 'best'), so to improve, you should concentrate on completely enunciating final consonants and consonant clusters.
Thank you so much Mister Micawber!!Your advice is very helpful to me.
and I also have difficulty in pronouncing(is it correct to use the verb “pronounce” instead of “produce” here?)
some phrases(words?) like "just moment","a sad story" "looked".Would you mind recording your voice and uploading it
? By the way,it can tell i'am a Chinese speaker of English from my voice? Emotion: big smile

Hi,

Could you give me some feedback on my pronunciation?

Many thanks!

Hello, Juwell.

I think it is just fine, apart from being distinctly British. Pronunciation is not something you need worry about; just be sure to check the pronunciation of new vocabulary in your dictionary. Many us go around pronouncing a word wrong simply because we learned it by reading it but never bothered to check the pronunciation.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thank you very much for your quick reply, Mister Micawber!

That sounds as if a British pronunciation could be an impediment for me? Would British people (and English native speakers in general) find my accent odd? What kind of British accent is it to British ears? Would they recognise my mother tongue?

Thank you!

Not at all! I was making a joke at the expense of my British friends. I am very much an AmE speaker. Everyone must have some accent or another.

I am not an expert, but it certainly sounds standard BrE to me. I cannot recognize that you are from Germany.
Thanks a lot, Mister Micawber! This is really helpful!

If any BrE speaker should read this, how would you describe my accent or what does it sound like to you?

Many thanks and Happy Christmas to all of you!

well I've been always trying to speak some kind of American accent of the English language, so I wonder if I sound alike to americans or, maybe, to anyone else (but please, don't tell me I have this ugly drunk-bear Russian accent). Thanks

**Edit.
by the way before saving this record sounded better.
I re-recorded, the one above is the new one.
