Hi, again. Using your valuable helps in this link (https://www.duolingo.com/comment/9989355$comment_id=10019820) I have reorganized my paragraph. And I read and recorded my voice.

This is my old (and which has some mistakes) paragraph:

¡Hola! Mi nombre es Korat Bora. Yo soy de Turco. Tengo 45 años. Estoy casado y tengo una niño. Aqui, yo trabajo Español para quince días. Me gusta Duolingo. Y me gusta leer libros, escuchar música, mirar peliculas. Hay los amigos excelentes en Duolingo. Con ayuda de los amigos, quiero adelantar mi Español. Gracias. Buenas noches.

And this is my new and corrected paragraph:

¡Hola! Mi nombre es Korat Bora / Me llamo Korat Bora. Yo soy turco / Yo soy de Turquía. Tengo 45 (cuarenta y cinco) años. Estoy casado y tengo un niño. Aqui, yo estudio Español durante / desde hace dos semanas. Me gusta Duolingo. Y me gusta leer libros, escuchar música, ver peliculas. Hay amigos excelentes en Duolingo. Con la ayuda de mis amigos, quiero mejorar mi Español. Gracias. Buenas noches.

And if you want to listen to it with my voice, the link is below (I am sorry for the bad voice quality):

I think there are a lot of mistakes in my pronunciation / diction. If you listen to it and say my mistakes to me, I would like to be happy and grateful.

That's impressive Korat! Well done! I only noticed the E and the R sounds in "leer" were a bit flat, but the diction is quite good. I'm sure it'll only get better as you practice more. Cheers!

Well done Korat. I understood every word. I will be visiting Turkey again in a couple of weeks, but am ashamed to say I have not managed to learn to speak Turkish. It is a very difficult language

Thank you very much. Yes, Turkish language is a little difficult. (If I am not a Turk, it certainly would be difficult for me.) Suffixes, conjugations for every person and every tense, sometimes different writings in the same word, a lot of rules of grammer, etc... :) But believe me, even you know some Turkish words is enough in Turkey. Everybody will understand you and try to help you.

Wow! Excelente, KoratBora. Debo decirte que estoy impresionado. Lo hiciste muy bien a pesar de que solo has estudiado español por solo un par de semanas. Sigue así. :D

Awesome KoratBora, your paragraph is excellent, without any mistake and your audio is perfect too. It's really good that you try things like these. Why are you learning Spanish? I mean you're Turkish, isn't common that Turkish people want to learn Spanish, is it? I wanna know your reasons and congrats! again, I'm native Spanish speaker and I know nothing about Turkish language.

keep learning. hasta luego!

Thank you very much for your nice comments about me. Yes, as you say, in Turkey it isn't very common to learn Spanish language. (But, anymore the people in Turkey start to be interested this nice language.) In fact I like all languages. But, I like Spanish language too much. Because, some specialities are the same with Turkish. For example, the pronunciation of the letters (especially "R", "CH" and vowel letters), some words (baño - banyo in Turkish)... And like Turkish, we read Spanish words how we write. (For example: "Por favor" in writing and "Por favor" in reading.) And i like the music of the Spanish language. And finally some day I want to read books and watch films originally in Spanish. For example some day I want to read "Don Quixote" in its original language. :)

I didn't know the similitude between Spanish and Turkish; yeah you're right, we read the words as we write them, good work, people call Spanish La lengua de Cenvantes If you need something about Spanish ask me for it.
