Other questions about "Amanda"

Q: Amanda isn’t working this week.
Amanda doesn’t work this week.

Which is correct and why?
A:

Amanda isn’t working this week.

The is-not form informs us that although she is off work this week, it is not a permanent state.

It can't be, because "this week" only happens once. In the entire history of time, there will only ever be one week that is THIS particular week.

That's why - she doesn't work - is incoherent, because do and does refer to permanent, regular things which can be relied upon.

She doesn't work in the evening.
- there is more than one "evening" - they happen every day. So this sentence is correct.

Q: Amanda says eating a high-protein diet, portion control, and light exercise are to thank for maintaining her new weight. does this sound natural?
A: Okay, so most people would probably say you sound fine. You do sound fine! More than fine. However, I think there are a few spots that would give away the fact that you aren't a native speaker.

- It almost sounded like you pronounced the d in Amanda as a flapped d, like the sound in the middle of "better" or "bladder" -- some people might pronounce it this way, but I personally feel that it sounds a bit more standard if it's pronounced as a clear "d"

- The vowel in "high", "light", and the final vowel in "exercise" almost didn't even sound like a diphthong. The vowel (which verged on a monophthong) you produced sounded more typical of Southern American English, whereas in Standard American a clear diphthong would be heard.

- Also, if you don't release the final t at the end of "diet" then you probably should do the same for "weight" (you released the t in weight, i.e. produced a fully aspirated consonant)

Otherwise, extremely well done! Like I said, I'm being extremely nit-picky, and most people would probably say you already sound totally fine even without these suggestions. Anyway, I've attached a recording of how I would read this.
