I remember when I heard you record a passage last time. You've come on an awful lot! Well done!
The only technical point I'd raise is that of your "C" and "Z". As mentioned above, your "C" in 草 sounds a bit like a "Z", and therefore it makes the first word sound like 早.
My biggest comment would be you need to work on yours phrasing now. Your basic sounds and tones are all great, so now you need to start working on seeing the bigger picture. You need to work on the intonation of phrases while still keeping the tones of each word, you need to know which sounds to emphasise, and which not to, and where to speed up and slow down etc. Of course, you also need to get your pauses right.
This is my attempt. It's far from perfect, but I think my phrasing is pretty clear. Perhaps give it a listen https://vocaroo.com/i/s1vbjz3GrPYx
Also, here is my attempt at explaining "C" vs "Z". https://vocaroo.com/i/s0UjI9r2dX6F
Eden worded right. It has vibration when you sound z in pinyin. It is like the Cantonese 二 . (意) same way。and 草 ciao c is sounded 抄，吃equally lightly . You always do the same help for me before. So I do anything for you back make you smile.
Yes. I stay in US and doing labor work. I have a baby and enjoying learning English and wandering italki.
Wow Phil. You have really come on a lot. Well done for getting this far.
Laurence gave a good demonstration of the c and z.
