    It's very good, you don't need to worry about your accent. Just use your English a lot and it will become perfect. Don't try and rush into perfection, let it find you gradually. I'm still waiting, and look how fine I am!

    hi ...
    i would like to think that nothing can be perfect ... accent differ from country to country even though english is the spoken language but as long as people are able to understand what we are saying then we can safely say that we speak proper english

    anyway, there is nothing wrong with your accent.

    Cheerssss !!

    Your rhythm and cadence will remain a bit Gallic for a year or two more. The swing of American English takes a few years to feel

    Yes, I speak 100% Parisian French too, so I recognize your sing-song.
