I like accents, 'cause you can learn where ppl are from.

The bad thing is that sometimes you don't understand ppl. I have trouble with American sometimes, I understand British better 'cause I learnt English there.

I love accents. Very Happy A lot of them are really pretty. ^^ It makes me wonder what a typical American accent (not Southern or Northeastern, more like a Midwestern or Western accent) sounds like to someone from Britain or Australia. ^w^ I'm from California, so I guess I have a 'Western' accent... though I don't think it's noticeable like a Southern or New England accent. Mostly we just say 'dude' a lot and act really laidback. xD

It's so funny to hear my grandparents speak. They were born and raised in Hawaii so they have really thick Pidgin/Asian accent. xD

I live in Texas right now but I absolutely will not develop a Southern accent. xD Me and my friend (who's from Southern CA) refuse to say 'ya'll'.

Well, I'd imagine that if you were young enough you'd develop a different accent if you moved somewhere else. But I was eight when I moved to Texas, so I guess that was old enough to retain my regional accent.

Well, I'd think it's possible if you were surrounded by people with an accent long enough. I've noticed that when I'm with my cousins from New York, my voice sometimes mimicks their accent.

I learnt English in Southern England, so my English accent is from there, but my Spanish accent is from where I live.

I think It's the 4th or 5th most spoke language of the world.
Can you understand this?
"Hola, yo vivo en EspaƱa."

Ok, then you really should study again.
It meant:
"Hello, I live in Spain."

It's easy to learn (I think). It's sort of like English, different obviously, but not as different as an Asian language.
