A voice message

I just recorded a voice messge. Can anybody listen it please and tell me whether you can understand it. Thanks in advance.




It will be better, if you can give me some advice. Thanks one more time.

It is clear and easy to understand. As already noted, "raining" sounded like "ringing"

The other three that sounded a little different:

learnt (sounded like "lent") - don't pronounce the 'e' at all, just "lrnt"
short (sounded like "shot") - long vowels are typically dipthongs, sh-uh-oo-r-t
over (sounded like "ower") - produce 'v' from the throat

Otherwise, it sounded like you spoke quite naturally.

Really good job on those words, LY - "short" was spot on! The two I noticed in this one were...

give - maybe accent the 'g' and 'v' a little more, not sure

thank (sounded like "sank") - 'th' instead of 'ts'

@डैन Thank you for listening and giving me the precious advice. I listened "learnt", "short", "over" many times after you gave me the advice. I tried my best to imitate the accurate pronounciation. I hope I have gotten the key point.

 I understood fairly easily :). However, you should practice the word "raining", it sounds like you are saying "ringing".

 Raining is much better. Short is completely fixed. You say it with a lot of confidence the second time:)

Your v's still need a little work.

Note that in English, "learned" and "learnt" are both acceptable, and have the same meaning. What you say sounds like the correct pronunciation of "learned".
