something about spoken English
Nice to meet you guys I'm new here.
I would like to ask something about oral, I'm a Hong Konger and I have heard some westerners said our spoken English is not good coz we neglect of the correct way to pronounce, like when we say the word "ask" , we just simply ignore the "k", another example, "test", we pronounce it as "tes" stuff like that.
But people found it strange to emphasis on the "k" and "t" and another other words, and they will think you are kinda showing off to SAY THEM RIGHTLY!
So I'm not sure how to say them in a natural way...

PS- I'll say 'I'll tex you' rather than 'text', but when I said this on a forum, some Americans didn't like the idea.
On another note, many Indian speakers say 'aks' for 'ask'. The key is called 'approximation'- each person moves a little closer to the other in order to communicate. ;-)
