Hello Edgar, welcome to Lingora :)

I'mso impressed with your English. You speak fluently and clearly and have really good pronunciation. Your're completely right. The very best way to improve your speaking and writing skills in English is to make friends with native English speakers and interact with them as much as you possibly can.

I'm learning Spanish myself so would love to practice it with you. When do you normally have free time to practice? I'm normally free on Saturdays and Sundays.

Here are just a few things I think you need to work on from listening to your audio;

1. Your pronunciation of the word "intermediate" [in-ter-mee-dee-it] could do with being improved. Listen to me saying it a few times.

2. "I don't think I will have any problems by speaking to you in English" You don't need the preposition "by" in this instance. "I don't thing I will have any problems speaking to you in English"

Hi Edgar.

Really good audio.  It's generally really clear - just occasionally your voice drops at the end of a word and this makes it more difficult to understand.  Also words like "everyone" and "another" need to be carefully enunciated.  However, you are very fluent and your intonation and stress is very natural so well done.   

Unfortunately, I am trying to learn Italian and I know that learning Spanish would only confuse me; otherwise I would be very glad to practise with you!

Warm regards

Ros

Another Guatemalan! I love it. I am also from Guate.

This was great! You sound confident when you speak in English. I think you just need to keep practicing and tweaking your pronunciation.

I am recording the words I think you might need to practice. 

everyone

spanish

stuffs --> stuff is already plural

express

speaking

intermediate

you

help

completely

This might be a better sentence:

many people are really good with you - many people here are kind and welcoming with others

Saludos desde England!

Hi Edgar! Thanks for this, extremely fluent and clear!

Other than the above corrections, I would just watch out for your pronunciation of 'friend' which you say as 'frien.' Ensure you pronounce every letter, which is 'd' in this case, and don't tail off at the end.

Thanks,

Becky :)
