Good job! Just the following points need your attention:

1) we do not pronounce the 'ا' letter (Alef without hamza) except in the beginning; e.g:  اسمي إدموند  we pronounce it but ما اسمك we do not (I tried to record them for you but I faced a technical error defining my mic, will try to work on it)

2) Just spend more time practicing the ح خ letters, you pronounced fine but just with a little effort, they would be even perfect>

Thanks so much for your feedback Safy! In my next audio, I will take into account what you have advised me. Hopefully I will improve my pronunciation of the ح خ letters and make sure that I do not pronounce the 'ا' in the middle of a word. I am off to learn some more Arabic today, so will soon be practicing it more on here :-)
