When you study popular foreign language (English, Spanish, French, German), do you search only for native speakers?
When I installed this app, I was ready to speak with English speakers wherever they were born and grew. My main problems in English are listening and speaking, so I was interested in understanding different accents. But I spoke with a guy from India the other day, and I was exhausted after our conversation because I put a lot of energy for understanding his accent. I had to listen in 10 times more attentive than when I spoke with native speakers.
Do you have the same problem? And which accent is more difficult for you? I’m from Russia, and I know that most of Russians also have strong accent.
