Hi GV, great job! It is clear that you are already very comfortable and confident at speaking English. I love cricket too, though I much prefer playing it than watching it. Best of luck with your ambition to become a Solution Architect. A lot of studying and hard work is needed for that job, I imagine?

When you said "I like to watch the cricket", in English you do not need the determiner "the" when referring to sports. Instead you would just say "I like to watch cricket" or "I like to watch football"

When you said the phrase " for out of activity purpose" this phrase did not make too much sense. I think the phrase you are looking for is "Extra-curricular activities" or just simply "activities I do outside of work"

[en-thoo-zee-az-uh m] - enthusiasm - I feel you could do with improving your pronunciation of this word. So my advice would be to listen to me saying it a few times then practice again.

It was really hard to hear you because the recording was very faint and there was a loud banging in the background!  Can you re-record?

Hello again, GV. Good to know all that information Your audio was difficult to listen to due to the low quality; however, I could find some points for you to consider:

(Maybe I have misheard some of them smiley)

- Thanks for reading my audio -> Thanks for listening to my audio.

- It really excited me by watching the cricket -> Watching cricket really excites me.

- During my spare time, I would like to spend it on browsing the internet -> I would like to surf the internet during my spare time.

- Want to do business that is owned by me -> I want to run my own business.

- That is what I have currently to do that. -> That is what I currently do.

 

Keep up the good work! Remember, the more you post and get corrected, the further you improve your English skills. Good luck!
