Q: What do you think about my pronounciation?
"Are you about to do that?" Does this sound natural?
A: I don't want to be too critical on pronunciation because you said with clarity and people would understand what you're saying but just very little quirks made it noticeable to an accent. Saying "that" with more of a "d" (d-at) sound rather than the "th" (th-at), which sounds like a buzz. You can create that "th" sound by bringing the front of your teeth and press it to the tip of your tongue and hum ( you'll hear a buzz sound, I hope :) )and then slowly let you tongue go and say"that" = "th"- at)

I hope this helps you! ^ v^)
Q: I was wondering how I could improve my English pronounciation and what I do wrong about it. Does this sound natural?
A: You're somewhere in between a German accent and an American accent. The difference I'm hearing is very slight. There's a build up of speed on certain words that probably reflect the way German's speak. For instance in the word "pronunciation", you tend to shorten up on "nun" and "ation" and it sounds like you're almost breaking the word into pieces. An American would say each syllable with an even timing. Your vowels are less "flat", we sound very neutral in our vowels.

Also, words like "was" in "was wondering" you seem to add emphasis on the s sound making the word a bit harder. It is very close to how an American would pronounce it, you just need to use more neutral sounding vowels and even out the spacing of longer words. I'm not a linguist, but I do have a good ear for accents. Take this with a grain of salt.

When you watch TV, pay attention to how neutral our vowels are and the spacing of each syllable, it's very fluid. You're extremely close, I would say the difference is almost nothing.
Q: How about my pronounciation and accent?
'How long is it since I saw you last?'
Where will you put strong and weak accent on? Does this sound natural?
A: Where you put the accent depends on what you want to emphasise.

You could stress "saw" or "long", or even "how". But your sentence sounds good.
