Challenge: Why waste good food (10/06/2016)

@Spanish speakers: please let me know how you think I can improve. Any tips you have would be much appreciated.

Francia se ha convertido en el primer país del mundo en prohibir a los supermercados tirar o destruir los alimentos que no se han vendido. El Gobierno galo fuerza así a las grandes superficies a donar estos productos a organizaciones benéficas y a los bancos de alimentos, informa The Guardian.

En virtud de una ley aprobada por unanimidad en el Senado francés, los responsables de los supermercados, de superficies de más de 400 metros cuadrados, se expondrán a una multa de 75.000 euros o dos años de cárcel si no cumplen la norma.

Los bancos de alimentos y las organizaciones benéficas, por su parte, están obligados a recoger y almacenar los alimentos en condiciones higiénicas y distribuirlos adecuadamente

El resto, está bastante bien pronunciado, por decirte algo a mejorar puedes practicar más la diferencia entre el sonido R y RR, es un sonido que cuesta mucho esfuerzo pero ya casi lo tienes, sólo tienes que hacer la R más suave y la RR mas fuerte.

En la RR, la lengua se apoya en el principio del paladar y vibra.
En la R, la lengua se apoya en la mitad del paladar y no vibra. Te pongo dos ejemplos:

This is a tough one as we do not have a sound not even remotely similar to this one in English. So I think I need to keep listening and practicing each day.

tienes que intentar parecer menos robot, la mayoria de los angloparlantes cuando hablan español parecen un robot de google! ;). tienes muy buen español sin embargo, mi critica es para perfeccionar o pulir tu español.

Hehehe ;) Si, es verdad Victor. Muy buena observación. Creo que para parecer menos robot, tengo que imitar, escuchar (y cuando puedo) y hablar con hablantes nativos lo maximo que puedo. Despues creo que puedo conseguir un acento más auténtico. Gracias de nuevo!
