Could you ,as a native speaker, record this
Before I begin my story, I would like to tell you a little about my early life. I was born in a large farm in the middle of England and my father called me Lemuel Gulliver, After I finished school, I studied in Cambridge for three years and then became an apprentice to a Surgeon in London. The surgeon, Mr Bates, was a very good one, but I always wanted to travel. So in my free time I learned how to sail so that one day I could leave England and explore the world
When I had finished my studies, Mr Hates helped me to get work as a surgeon on a ship called the Swallow, and for three and a half years, 1 worked on this ship as it travelled round the eastern seas.
I then got married to a kind woman called Mary Burton. I decided to stay in London with my new wife for a few years, but work was not easy to find. Mary and I agreed that, because there was no work in London, it would be best if I took another job on a ship. This I did, and for six years I travelled around the world.
