    British Accent

    is it really that hard to understand? Ive realised alot of other people from other countries ....even americans have difficulty understanding our English. why?

    even some foreign students at uni cant sometimes understand us and we have to repeat wot we said many times. the one who has the BIGGEST problem is my chinese lecturer....he can never understand my friend....even if she repeats 5/6 times and I then have to translate for her :halo: he understands me quicker than he understands her

    and then there is also a phd student...who's from India. me and friend were working together so she called him over for some help with some work....she started explaining to him what she was stuck on ....and guess wot he says to her ? "im sorry I dont understand ur English" u shouldve seen the look on her face when he said that....she just zipped her mouth after that....and then I had to translate once again

    but even with my English, they sometimes have a problem with it.... then I have to repeat everything slower

      British accents are hilarious . Yea it's a bit hard understanding them sometimes. I love making fun of them, though. Haha, my sister can do a really funny imitation of a British accent . Ok, but Johnny Depp sounds kinda cute with that Brit accent. Laiken sirf him

          ^Londoners speak different. their accent is very close to American....theres is too posh just like the Queen

          I mean go up north abit...like Birmingham although I dont have the brummy accent....I dont know wot my accent is

          but I love Manchester accent....my cousins wife is from there and I really like the way they speak....and my cousin is also picking it up from his wife

          yorkshire accent is also cute though. if u heard it phatima...u wouldnt stop laughing.

          and scottish accent....well lets say "no comment" to that
