Not a single mention of Ice Hockey World Champs and subsequent officialized Olympic qualification for Beijing...:(

 

anyway interesting idea guys. :yes Definitely going to follow this on a regular basis

You know, sometimes I just forget about events. The ICC World Cup, ANOC Beach Games, and Rugby Sevens World Series were all last minute editions. It also happened the weekend before so it was kind of in a gray area.

Now I wonder if @heywoodu has a strong Dutch accent. :d

I’m curious what you guys thought about the way I speak English. Supposedly there’s actually a branch of English in California that’s becoming more and more distinct from other parts of the language.

Well, I'm wondering what would you say about my English. Is it more British or American? I never know.

I'm fairly sure my Dutch accent is a lot stronger than for example @Vojthas's Polish accent, of which I was surprised it was (to my untrained ear) almost non-existent :p

Sounded pretty fluent to me, almost native.

Well I’ve heard a lot of Europeans speak English because the Air Force base near where I live is a NATO affiliated one I believe. I know we’ve at least had Danish, Dutch, Scottish, and German families in town (and at my old high school) before. So if I didn’t know where you lived I would’ve said Brazilian accented English in all honesty, but it sounds close to the German accented English too. Your English is closer to American English though I would say. 

@dcro I don’t know if @heywoodu would have a strong accent because Dutch is the closer language to English, and from the Dutch kids I’ve heard speak English, they are all (at least when they come here for the 2 year stay or whatever) highly fluent and have a barely noticeable accent.

Pretty much the one accent I've heard for so long now (almost 11 years) I would definitely not mistake this one for :d

I’m going to find a way to blacklist the podcast in Croatia. It shouldn’t be hard, I’ll just watch out for those people wearing ugly checkers.
