Is this an american accent? I would like you to hear this recording and tell me if I have a kind of native american accent. Does it sound foreign to an american ear?. That's the sort of question that I would like you to answer. I 'm open to all sort of comments. here is the video link; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TFlK81pwtM&feature=youtu.be

Native american? As in tribal natives? Definitely not. That sounds like a foreigner speaking English (some sort of mix of French or European accent), and going by the pronunciation, it sounds as though his mouth is stuffed with a bagel or cake. Also, several words are not pronounced correctly at all.

I'm sorry, it sounds very non-native and artificial. You sound nervous and your speech is choppy. Try to relax when speaking.

The accent does sound foreign to me, too. You should work on the pronunciation of the "th" sound and the long vowel sounds (like the long "o" in "domain"). You can find helpful pronunciation videos on Youtube!

It sounds foreign. You definitely need to practice the pronuniciation of "traveler"
