Fluency

The learner's ability to speak continuously by chunking and linking words together. For example, instead of saying very slowly, "I - am - poor. I - have - no - money" like a robot, a fluent speaker would say, "I'm poor because I don't have any money."

Speech is relatively smooth; some hesitation and unevenness caused by rephrasing and searching for words

Hola! 

Muy bien hecho! 

Tengo dos observaciones en esta ocasión:

fluency - fluidez del audio: aprecio que estas leyendo y queriendo acertar con cada palabra. Creo que lo has logrado muy bien. Tal vez como práctica intenta leerlo un poco más natural. Te grabaré el audio con mi voz y acento asi tienes una mejor idea de lo que te comento. 

pronunciation - pronunciación: estuvo muy bien, excepto cuando la palabra comienza con la vocal "e".

En español, todas las vocales se dicen igual, no hay long o short vowel sounds. Todos son equivalentes a short vowel sounds en Inglés. 

Así que la "e" siempre suena como en "elephant". En tu texto suena como que estuvieras diciendo las palabras con "i" en vez de con "e". [es - sounds more like "is", same as in esposa, sounds like "isposa".] 

 

Esta es mi primera charla en español. Vivo en Inglaterra con mi esposa y nuestro hijo. Él tiene cinco años y va a una escuela primaria.
