Desert 33

The monster managed to hit another guard using its tail before they dumped it to the ground pushing their spears down. Several other guards pinned the creature's tail. The monster wriggled furiously but they held it tightly. One more spear pierced the creature's mouth.
Meanwhile, we stood by the ladder with our mouths open, looking at it. The creature wriggled but its movements grew weaker. The guard who was hit stood up and by the accompaniment of laughter and jokes went up to his friends. He raised his spear and shield with a cut-off top and shook his head while examining it.

Hi Oleks -  Hardly anything to correct here and you were right to put to comma after 'with our mouths open'!! 

I think 'wrestled' it to the ground might be more descriptive than 'dumped'

You would say 'and, to the accompaniment of laughter and jokes,'   You need the commas here because you are adding a separate clause before going back to the original one.

Nothing to correct in the audio except the work 'spear' which I've already uploaded an audio for.
