Thank you very much, Sir_Magikarp, this is amazing!

Fantastic, just what I needed, thank you very much!

Wow, the short and long “o”s are really hard to tell apart (for me as a German)! But that's what minimal pairs are for, isn't it? :)

Listening intensely, I have the impression you pronounce “start start“ and “staart staart“ the other way round, don't you?

Oct. 12, 2016

Sorry, mistook “staat“ for “staart“. Too bad I can't delete my comments.
