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.

 

A lot of them do have a strong accent. I hear it almost every time a Dutch athlete gets interviewed or something.

Well the kids that come here have also been exposed to a fluent society at a much younger age to I guess, maybe that has something to do with it?

Kids are a lot quicker at picking up the 'right' way to speak though. I've had English classes until 11 years ago or something, after that it's all just talking to other people who don't have English as native language. I'm able to say what I want without problems though (sometimes better than in Dutch) and that's what matters for me, which is why I'm also fine with my heavily accented German :p

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.

You there, stop messing with my bro or get the fuck out.

At least you don't have to live with an accent where it sounds like you have a potato stuck in your throat. :p

Sounds like Sagans interviews when he first came to California. “How was the race today?”, “Good.”. “Who was your hardest competition today?” Response in Slovakia or Czech or whatever the hell yall speak
