An excerpt from Harold Ickes's speech, 'What is an American?' (1941)

"I say that it is time for the great American people to raise its voice and cry out in mighty triumph what it is to be an American. And why it is that only Americans, with the aid of our brave allies--yes, let's call them "allies"--the British, can and will build the only future worth having. I mean a future, not of concentration camps, not of physical torture and mental straitjackets, not of sawdust bread or of sawdust Caesars--I mean a future when free men will live free lives in dignity and in security.

This tide of the future, the democratic future, is ours. It is ours if we show ourselves worthy of our culture and of our heritage."

It would be difficult for terrorists to mount a nuclear attack on a U.S. city, but
such an attack is plausible and would have catastrophic consequences, in one
scenario killing over a half-million people and causing damage of over $1 trillion.
Terrorists or rogue states might acquire a nuclear weapon in several ways. The
nations of greatest concern as potential sources of weapons or fissile materials are
widely thought to be Russia and Pakistan. Russia has many tactical nuclear weapons,
which tend to be lower in yield but more dispersed and apparently less secure than
strategic weapons. It also has much highly enriched uranium (HEU) and weaponsgrade
plutonium, some said to have inadequate security. Many experts believe that
technically sophisticated terrorists could, without state support, fabricate a nuclear
bomb from HEU; opinion is divided on whether terrorists could make a bomb using
plutonium. The fear regarding Pakistan is that some members of the armed forces
might covertly give a weapon to terrorists or that, if President Musharraf were
overthrown, an Islamic fundamentalist government or a state of chaos in Pakistan
might enable terrorists to obtain a weapon. Terrorists might also obtain HEU from
the more than 130 research reactors worldwide that use HEU as fuel.
If terrorists acquired a nuclear weapon, they could use many means in an
attempt to bring it into the United States. This nation has many thousands of miles
of land and sea borders, as well as several hundred ports of entry. Terrorists might
smuggle a weapon across lightly-guarded stretches of borders, ship it in using a cargo
container, place it in a hold of a crude oil tanker, or bring it in using a truck, a boat,
or a small airplane.

Hola, como estan? Me llamo Juan, y me gusta comer pan. Durante el dia, tomo mate y miro porn con mi abuela. Mi abuela tiene cien años, pero tambien le gusta el porn. Aveces, cuando tengo mucho miedo, mi abuelita me hace un te que me calma completamente. No se que le pone, pero por alguna razon, funciona.

Mi tio, Gabriel, es medio puto, pero el tambien aveces me hace un te especial. Su te me da una ereccion, entonces lo tomo cuando estoy por cojer a tu madre. Necesito este te porque si no, mi pito queda chiquito.

Want some Yeats?

I know that I shall meet my fate
Somewhere among the clouds above;
Those that I fight I do not hate,
Those that I guard I do not love;
My country is Kiltartan Cross,
My countrymen Kiltartan's poor,
No likely end could bring them loss
Or leave them happier than before.
Nor law, nor duty bade me fight,
Nor public men, nor cheering crowds,
A lonely impulse of delight
Drove to this tumult in the clouds;
I balanced all, brought all to mind,
The years to come seemed waste of breath,
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life, this death.

One thing. You are pronouncing you "th" like "z".

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZoCfWdFHns

Watching this should better help you understand the sound. Watch out for words like the, that, there, because you are pronouncing them zuh, zat, and zere.
>>
>>53349557
You seem to mix up v and w, pronouncing w as v and v as w. It's still understandable. Th is more like a "d" sound but lighter, rather than a "z" sound.

What part of Ukraine are you from?
>>
>>53349894
North Ukraine, near Kiev. Wait, what? I always thought that v and w haven't any difference.
>>
>>53349989
Nope, they are different.

Most native English speakers have an American accent. And I'm trying to emulate a native speaker, so it's logical to use the most common accent.

I also think American media was a lot more prominent and widely available in my formative years than British media. Although I do consume a lot of British media, too...

Norwegian:
Mitt navn er Kristopher, eks lokomotivforer
sonn av en skipsreder. Eg var hans stedfortreder
Eg blei tatt hånd om av ei nonne i et kloster
Eg gjekk i tjeneste for mitt land og kom heim som krigsoffer
Og eg blei lam i frå livet og ner
Og mitt navn blir ikkje lenger nevnt når folk ber
For ingen husker gamle Kristopher
Han som redda fem liv for sjolv å bli et krigsoffer

With accompanying song:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RgXRe2qqjM

It's in a nice dialect, but I won't deduct points if you use Standard Eastern Norwegian.

Only thing I would nitpick would be the way you said breath. It sounded like you were pronouncing the th as an f. Other times you made the th sound perfectly fine.

You outright missed a huge amount of soft sounds, which can often completely change the meaning of the word. Like yгoл (angle), and yгoль (coal).

Your accent is far better than almost any American, yet you fuck up seemingly really trivial things. That's mostly a compliment, but you still have a lot to work on.

Also, nice singing
