The only way I was able to tell you aren't a native English speaker was the middle part.

Your "has" was too soft. Late-ly was broken up a bit harshly too.

I think you are some form of a Slav. Probably Poland or Czech. One sentence is not enough for me to be accurate.

You sound like a Polish bimbo ready to take my kielbasa.

Is it possible for me to speak with a neutraless accent?
>>16592711
I will when I get home.
>>
>>16592780
What the fuck is a neutral accent?

Like you're from Hollywood, CA or something?

Sure.
>>
>>16592780
Yes it is. Your accent just needs polishing.

>>16592781
Midwest English is the purest and easiest to understand.

How to polish it?
>>
>>16592864
Nah, your accent is already polish
>>
>>16592864
You only spoke a sentence, I was the guy who posted this >>16592709

You'll have to speak more for me to be able to tell.

>>16592895
I'm not Polish

Here is a longer audio clip of me talking: http://vocaroo.com/i/s068QohCgJPF

That was very natural.

"drawing" "think" "like"

Improve on these words and you will be excellent. The key is the natural flow of how you speak. These words sounded unnatural. Work on how you transition to them.

The only way to overcome that is to have whole conversations in English.

Other than that, its really good.

>was very natura
So neutral accents do exist!
I guess it is an improvement as people in the past could easily pinpoint my location after I uploadrd an audio clip of myaelf talking on /adv/.
