When you said the word "English" try to put more stress on the end of the word - the "sh" sound --> /ˈɪŋ·ɡlɪʃ/

When you said "I'm studying" you pronounced it as if there was an "a" at the beginning of the word - "astudying".

when you said "become fluent in other language like English give you more job opportunities". I think it would be better, (simply as the act of becoming fluent in another language is an ongoing event) to say it like this: "becoming fluent in other languages like English gives you more job opportunities"

the words, "pressure" and "schedule" are really hard for non-native speakers of English. So I advise you to listen to me say them several times, then keep practicing

Thanks for your feedback, it's very important for me. Yes it's so hard but I'll practice and upload another audionote.

When you said "Thanks for creators" in this instance you would use the preposition "to", rather than "for" so the correct way to say it would be "Thanks to the creators". Does that make sense? Let me know if you need me to go over it a bit more?

Finally, rather than saying "English native", we would instead say "native English speakers". For example, I am a native English speaker, you are a native Spanish speaker.

Thank you Ed, you are so patient and you are a good English teacher. I noticed my errors and I will fix them with practice. Rome didn't built in an hour.

Excellent, Aitor. As I said, your English is really good and I understood everything! I think you could easily work in an English speaking environment! The changes above are just a few, subtle changes to help you get even better! PS: I love the phrase "Rome wasn't built in a day"!

Hi Aitor - Yes, as Ed says - your English is very good.  You obviously take care to pronounce the words carefully.  Ed has given you very good feedback.  When we change the word "language" from singular to the plural "languages" we have to pronounce the word as three syllables instead of two - so it becomes "Languag - es". 

As I said, your pronunciation is generally excellent.  If it interests you, you could improve your intonation and stress by listening to recordings of native speakers and concentrate on where they put their stress and then copy them.

I agree - Edmund has created a very good site!  

Warm regards  Ros

Hi again, Aitor. Great job! As Ed and Ros have mentioned, your English is fabulous. Keep it up! You speak English very well and you pronounce English words nicely. You are an advanced student of English. All you have to do now is fine tune your skills and pay careful attention to details of English grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. You can take specialized courses for each of the skills. And if you encounter any questions along the way, we will be here to help you. Good luck!

PS: I strongly agree with you. Lingora is a great system :)
