Ob says thanks for the edit.
I feel I've heard that before about the accent.
True, no envy. From what I hear it's a bitchandahalf as a second language. Most Americans don't seem to bother to use it correctly themselves. (The pattern in the US seems to be that those with English as a second language sometimes get notably higher scores in English/writing than native speakers. That being said, I have no data, and it's only positive stereotype.)

I haven't heard the American English accents that are undiscernible as English, but I don't doubt their existence. I've heard people add a "T" into the word "shrimp". Like, an audible T right before the R. I can not, for the life of me, say it like that myself.

I can understand. We have at least 300 local languages and dialect between cities, provinces and islands. I can go to the next town in the west of my hometown and understand fuck all what the locals are saying. With English, you have the Asian 'flavor' as well. Some speak with a very thick local accent while some others, like me, have a more standardized accent.
@Draconis NevynYou still speak English on top of Gaelic, no? :P
As a non-native here, English is pretty much isolated to the educated, tourist locale or the metropolitan citizens.
could have done with being a bit longer, but the emotion is there and it's solid enough
i'll get my own up soonish, i've got 2/3 segments done and just need to get off my ass for the last
@tobiaxI personally have no meaningful feedback to give to you. I think your latest post is pretty good, but I'd reckon that the other native English speakers could give something more useful for your improvement.
