Best Answer

Americans are not good at understanding accents because they aren't exposed to them.

Best Answer

Since I live in New Jersey and work in computing, I am exposed to plenty of accents from non-native English speakers. I find their accents much easier to follow than people with Irish accents.

Best Answer

If you were exposed to many people with Irish accents, you would understand them easily.

Best Answer

I must have a mental block, since I know a few Irishmen, and for the life of me, I can only understand about 80% of what they're saying at best.

Best Answer

I think the problem might be the Irish with this one.
