    Re: Help me with my accent, please!

    I don't want to be taken for a native speaker, because I guess that wouldn't be possible to achieve at my age. I would only like my accent to sound more or less American or more or less British (or Australian, or whatever...), just to an extent that would make a native speaker notice and hear this one particular influence. Now I sound just...Polish and that's not the way REAL English should sound...

    Of course I'm TOTALLY proud of being Polish! It has nothing to do with wanting to improve my skills in English. I don't want to sound English when I speak Polish just like and I don't want to sound Polish when I speak English.

    britintheUS I'm afraid that this already is "the accent of my own that I have formed". It probably won't change unless I put special effort into it...

    Wicked Pissah, thanks! I'll try to slow down.
    Why do you suggest American?

    cuz American is much more diverse and it's way cooler, lol. American culture is broad based and emulated around the globe...even Saddam Hussein loved American movies...right up until he got his neck stretched....the haters are jealous.
