    Re: Bruce Lee's English (IELTS Band)

    He's good, and the grade is not based simply on pronunciation. He speaks very fluently and naturally with an accent. NorwichEnglish is right about him saying man too much, though. He's an 8 or 9- he can give an interview and be interesting, getting his point across well, with natural hesitations and moves. The interviewer treats him as a native speaker, making no concessions or efforts to assist him because he doesn't have to.
