I Have An Accent

    I have a very clear accent like a native speaker

    because I've learnt three languages from a young age. My teachers back in British council commented that I speak very clearly, my mum hates my American accent she prefers it to be British. My ex-friend whom no longer speaks to me, who's someone I met on EP said when I'm reading...

    I was born in Asia, grew up

    as a teenager in NZ. I don't have an asian accent, nor do I have a complete kiwi accent. Some people say I have an American-British-Kiwi-Asian accent(?) - I don't even know anymore.

    Southern girl! I used to try to hide it-- not

    sure why. Now I've realized that it's my voice and I can't change it. So, honestly, I have a thick country accent.

    I have a southern accent

    and when I meet someone new from a different background than my own they tend to right me off as dumb by the way that I speak. I don't know why but it really irks me. I love listening to someone speak with a different accent. Does that ever happen to you?

    Yep, full blown Texas Drawl!

    !! I love it, mostly because it allows me to be instantly underestimated. When one hears the accent, there is an immediate assumption that there's a lack of education or intellect. I truly enjoy the double take that occurs when there is a realization that the assumptions are...

    Technically everyone has an accent to everyone

    else but I have a Scottish accent that people seem to like which I hate, for example Youtuber Alfie Deyes said the Scottish accent is really strong and nice. I hate my accent I wish I had an English or any American accent ( I understand it's different depending on the state)

    I never saw myself as having any particular

    accent until I attended school down South (Georgia) and was told I did, lol. But I'm a San Franciscan, born and raised, and this IS my accent (although I have a lower voice).

    I have European accent .

    .. I am not sure if I quite know how to pronounce "th" properly, like "breath". It's easy for me to pronounce "t" or "d" but "th", which is essentially "t + d" feels kinda weird. I live in United States, an English speaking country and I have for many years but never got around...

    It's kinda funny really.

    I'm an American living in Australia. So I have an accent here but bc I've been here so long when I talk to my family or go back home they also think I have an accent. It's like I'm foreign no matter what. Also my accent gets mistaken for Irish a lot. Don't know if the combo of...

    I have an Estuary English accent,

    which is widely spoken across South East England. I'm not posh, but I'm not cockney either. I'm somewhere between the two.

    I have a really strong portuguese accent and it bothers me a lot. I try but I can't hide it very well so I get all shy when I have to talk to some of my friends in English. I end up not speaking at all bc having a strong accent annoys me so I get all confused and then I don't...
