Chatterbox?
[Eily]: ah yes, I've starting feeling more confident about my accent when I realised I'm always going to be pronuncing it wrong for someone anyway :)
[Eily]: started*
[ambrus]: LanX: native speakers are close, but they aren't on the top. there are a _few_ foreigners who have such a thick accent that it takes more time to get used to it and understand the words behind than even the worst native speaker accents.
[ambrus]: but yes, typically native English speakers, who think that English is still their exclusive property, are the worst.
[LanX]: Eily: do you live in an English speaking country?
[LanX]: I think foreigners tend to simplify their phrases, whereby often native speakers don't know how to adapt
[Eily]: nope, France
[LanX]: That's pretty true for every language
[LanX]: so don't worry, anyway most spoken language in the world is broken English
LanX (especially in the streets of Singapore)
