Do you know your good and bad points of pronunciation in English

Today was the last day for my pronunciation workshop.
My teacher gave me feedback on my speaking.
This class was a good chance to learn about my own pronunciation.

Let me make a list here in order to reflect on my feedback.

[Good]

・ spoke clearly and used appropriate stress
・ used some very good 'English' intonation
・ pronounced some contractions (e.g. I've got') well
・ pronounced consonant/vowel linking very well

[Poor]

・ did sound a little hesitant
・ could work on your fluency, paying attention to chunking and consonant linking
(e.g. c/c linking - 'liked them', 'want me' 'the invitation'. c.f. the connected speech)
・ had some problems with /l/ and /r/ clusters as well
(e.g. depressing, prefect, work, further, English, first)
・ had some problems with Re vowel sounds
(e.g. note the difference between 'hop' and 'hope' /ou/)
・ had some problems with th souds
(e.g. methodology, rhythm)
・ could try playing around with increasing your pitch range
- it may help you to sound a bit more expressive -

Oh gee, I have a lot of things to work on...

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.

1. brekkie (in a newspaper)
= breakfast
2. tot (in a newspaper)
= a very young child
3. smurf (in a newspaper)
=
