奈津子先生、

こんにちは。お返事をありがとうございます。そうですね、私の名前はカタカナでエリックです。カタカナで他の外国人の名前と比べたら、かなりシンプルです。
Thank you for the reply. Indeed, my name written in katakana is エリック. Compared to other foreign names in katakana, mine is pretty simple.

アメリカ英語は母国語なので、五十音図のラ行の発音は難しいです。私は発音の練習をすべきです。頑張りましょう。
Since American English is my mother tongue, I find pronunciation of the RA row difficult. I ought to practice my pronunciation more. I’ll do my best with it.

At least I am on the right track with it apparently.
