What’s your accent?
Now that I’m working in two languages (French and English), I’m starting to see the differences in the way people pronounce words in French and even in English, I can immediately pick out the accent and the general region where its from as English is my mother tongue.
I mentioned this to my partner the other day and he says: You know, as multi-lingual speakers, we never have a native accent; even in the language we are most fluent in, it has an accent that is not native or as clear as someone who is uni-lingual…
Interesting. I definitely have an English accent when I speak French, but I don’t think my English has an accent.. yet.
