Spanish Challenge: Renewable Energy (15/06/16)

La inversión en energías limpias aumentó en China, África, EEUU, América Latina y la India en 2015, llevando el total mundial a su punto histórico más alto al alcanzar los 329.000 millones de dólares, un 4% más que en 2014, año en el que la inversión en el sector a nivel mundial lograba alcanzar los 316.000 millones, y batiendo el récord anterior, establecido en 2011 con 318.000 millones, en un 3%.

Las últimas cifras de Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) muestran que la inversión medida en dólares es cada vez mayor y en 2015 multiplicó casi por seis veces la registrada en 2004, estableciendo un nuevo récord de casi un tercio de billón de dólares, a pesar de cuatro factores que jugaban en contra y que podían haber impedido lograr este nuevo registro.

Ed enhorabuena!, Es un texto difícil, tiene muchas cifras y datos mezclados con palabras con muchas RR.

Lo has pronunciado prácticamente todo bien y con buen acento español, la palabra "Récord", la segunda vez que la has pronunciado, la has pronunciado muy bien.

Se nota que has trabajado el sonido R y RR, ya te va saliendo mucho mejor.

Cuando has dicho: "en 2015 multiplicó casi por seis veces la registrada en 2004", la pronunciación no ha sido la correcta, escúchame y practica cómo lo digo yo:

desafortunadamente , no puedo oir tu lectura. En ingles me dice "This type of audio file isn't suported". Si no te molesta, me puedes decir que tipo de formato de audio usaste para grabar la voz? Siempre se nota que hay que mejorar el sitio de Lingora ademas de los idiomas que estamos aprendiendo hehehe

La palabra "contra" se pronuncia con R más suave, en general, cuando antes de la R va una consonante (C, T...) la R es suave y va unida a ésta. Perdona si me explico un poco mal, no soy profesor de lengua jaja pero bueno te envío un audio con varias palabras para que veas la diferencia:

CRecimiento, CRujiente, TResillo, TRactor, TRopical, DRástico, ConTRa, CRiterio, DRenaje.

Don't apologize, Aitor! That is something that needs to be looked into (how to get .wma files to work here)! Ok, only if you get some time, it would be great to listen to your audio notes ;)

Thanks so much for this Aitor! That is fantastic! I will listen very carefully to your text and I am sure that by trying to imitate you, I will improve. PS: in English, we say "pay attention" and not "play attention". For example, you might say to a child, "please pay attention when the teacher speaks to you.". That ok?
