My teacher tolled me that there is no right or wrong in everyone's accent as long as they pronounce the words in a it correct form and the native speakers of English should not expect the ESL learners to speak in their accent cause it's really hard to because your mouth kind of adjusted to your mother language my advice is don't try to please others by speaking their accent just be yourself in pronouncing English as long as you're pronouncing it right
god bless you
Anglika: I doubt very much that they regard you as a "jerk" for having an American accent,
That was my first thought also. I wondered how much your conversation is laced with 'dude' and 'you guys' and multiple "awesome"s - heaven forbid, "give me a high five"s!
Look beyond the accent per se...............
