Marc: Claudia, your garden is so colourful and green. How do you keep the roses so fresh?
Marianne27: I always fill the pots with soil, and water them a lot.
Marc: Is that all? This can't be! The seeds I plant never grow! I am definitely doing something wrong.
Marianne27: You also need to pick up the leaves that have fallen, and trim them from time to time.
Marc: The only thing I am good at is mowing the lawn.
Marianne27: Perfect! In that case, you can mow my lawn!

Your main issue, Marianne, is with the 'th' sound, which is hard for non native-speakers - practice it to stop it sounding like 'z'. Also, "leaves" is one syllable, not two - so, not "leave-es".  But generally this was a good attempt. Well done.

I agree with grahamrhind.    For the strong th sound [with,pat etc] just put your tongue between your teeth and blow .  For the weak th sound [the,etc ] put your tongue behind the teeth and pull it back quickly as you blow.  Good luck.
