    Thanks. Anyway, getting rid of my foreign accent is also a question of self-esteem for me, as I am an English teacher. So, I think I'll have to roll up my sleeves and work hard on it.

    I guess you know that you could work on not ending all your words with a vowel. Maybe when you speak fast and get into a rhythm, that's something difficult to do. Very few Italians achieve it, I find. But there's no 'neutral' English accent.
    Yes, the -a ending to lots of words is one of my nightmares and I need to work on it. Thanks.
