I summarized a story I had read an hour ago about Saint Petersburg. I would greatly appreciate feedback on my pronunciation! This is the story I read if anyone is interested in reading it too: https://www.russianforfree.com/text-in-russian-beginner-coldest-town-on-earth.php

Hello! Your pronunciation is good. There are two moments to improve: 1) the stresses in words 2) you say [lja] instead [l’a]. But all Americans whom I’ve heard do this :)

Hello! I corrected some grammatical and stylistic mistakes, trying to stick to your text as close as possible. Your pronunciation is good, by the way, excepting some nuances. Санкт-Петербург - очень красивый город. Но у него есть история. Было очень трудно строить этот город, потому что раньше там было болото. Поэтому много людей умерло, когда строили этот большой город. Вот почему говорят, что этот город - на костях.
