Hello JacSal, welcome to Lingora!

Your English is very good. You speak clearly, confidently and fluently.

Please find below some ways in which I think you can improve.

This sentence "My first record to Lingora" is not quite right. The word you are looking for in this context is "recording". Next, the preposition is not "to" but "on".

So "My first recording on Lingora" will be my presentation.

When you said the word "Portugal", I understood it perfectly though I do feel you could do with improving your pronunciation of it. Listen to me a few times and have another go.

When you said the word "Equiance" I think you meant to say horse riding, am I correct? (As this is one of my hobbies too :-)  )

When you said "I'm study English" as this is an ongoing process, it would be better for you to say "I'm studying English" - like estou estudando ingles in Portuguese.

Same with this one "I love travel" - as it is an ongoing activity you like to do, it would sound more natural for you to say "I love travelling"

Generally understandable apart from the last hobby.  Some words had very good intonation ("presentation. I hope you’ll help me to improve my English") while others weren't right.  "Recording" for example.

Hi.  I thought your pronunciation was very good.  Other people have commented on this.  I have marked you highly for fluency and pronunciation.  You could improve your intonation by not always going down at the end of a sentence.  Try listening to native speakers if you can - perhaps on Youtube?  This will help a lot with intonation and make you sound more like a native speaker.  Very very good though!!  Ros
