Why Do You Speak Witth An Accent - Tips

Hello Sarah,

I am losing my American accent and picking up some type of world accent, I think the way the world learns English. This is acute sensing on your part. I am born and raised in the USA, however I have lived for 10 years, now as of May of 2007 in different cultures. A person becomes the culture they are in, or where they live. A socialization of the world has happened to me. My friend Michael at home says, "Andy you do not speak like Andy." I use very little slang, as it is of no value, I speak in short sentences, withme often saying,
"I go market." This is understood easier than I am going to go to the market now. Too many words and confuses a person who does not speak English as their first language. Unfortunately or fortunately I have learn to talk globally to common people, who speak small amounts of English, It is more normal to speak exceedingly simple as a foreighner would that does not speak English as their first language. I do not speak English to American very often, I write to an English speaking audience, about half, the rest are from around the planet. I am not sure, do you know I have a daily diary on the internet, I have a blog or travelogue whereby I type and speak, and have terrible grammar as normal. I do not write grammatically correct, I do not know how to, and I at this age, cannot be bothered, I do slowly improve.

appreciated.
I feel like your responses beg more questions, i'm
very intrigued. But I'll leave you to traversing the
globe. Where are you from originally? I sensed an
accent in your responses. How do you afford to get
around and how do come to trust anyone, for that
matter? Ok-enough, I said no more questions, I'm not
going to bug you any further. :> Thank you very much.
Sarah Thank you,
