I'd be especially interested in how this is perceived by UK speakers, but also in what it sounds like to the ear of other native speakers (US, ...)
OVERALL: is this accent typical for speakers of a certain language or area? Which?
Is it annoying/monotonous/stumbling/.../fluent/pleasing/...?
Generally clear/requires an effort to listen to?
OR more precisely, what is wrong compared to RP on the 4 levels:
-- individual sounds wrongly pronounced?
-- errors at the level of words, stress, etc.
-- intonation - how natural and appropriate?
-- rhythm, how natural is it?
Thank you very much. Be direct rather than polite about it. ;)
