Q: What is the difference between accent and dialect ?
A: For example, in English there is a (general) British accent and there's a (general) American accent, which are different in the sense that pronunciation is different overall, but speakers with both accents can understand each other with little difficulty.

Different dialects of a language, on the other hand, may not be understood by all speakers of that language. For example in Chinese, we have Mandarin (which is the official language of China) and dialects like Cantonese. People who only speak Mandarin cannot understand with Cantonese speakers in general.

There's a well-known saying: "A language is a dialect with an army and a navy."

Q: I am desperately trying to reduce my accent. I read books out loud for 3 hours everyday with Audio books. Please give me any advice I can work on. Does this sound natural?
A: The emphasis on some words is a little off but I can understand you very well. I have heard from others learning English that instead of reading, try watching the news in English. Hearing the words can be more affective so you can try to mimic and repeat what you hear. Movies and tv shows can be helpful but they often are more dramatic than normal every day conversation. Keep up the good work. You're doing great!
Q: I am desperately trying to reduce my accent. I read books out loud for 3 hours everyday with Audio books. Please give me any advice I can work on. Does this sound natural?
A: You sound really good! Even without reading the words, I would have understood everything you said perfectly.

Of course, because in Korean 'R' and 'L' are really close, you sometimes don't quite pronounce them right. You sometimes use 'L' where you should use 'R', and the other way around.

I noticed that when the 's' is next to another consonant, like 't', you stumble over your pronunciation a bit. Try practicing 'st' and 'sc' sounds.

Most of the time, you pronounce the 'th' sound perfectly, and then other times you pronounce it as just 't'. I think only time and practice can make it better, and you're already very close to perfecting that pronunciation!

I hope this helps! (:
