In relation to my previous post about the number of different dialects in the United States and favorites among English learners, I am now curious to know how many dialects do you have in the country you live in? What is your dialect and would you prefer to speak a different dialect?
As mentioned before, I speak with a Northern U.S. accent, but I prefer the Southern U.S. accent myself. If you're interested in the Northern accent, I offer English courses daily for beginners, intermediate, and advanced learners. I also offer conversational lessons for those looking for a native speaker just to converse with. Please visit my page for more information: www.italki.com/teacher/katyv or www.italki.com/teacher/3239587. I look forward to meeting you!
We have not only many different languages in our country but also many, many different dialects.
I speak a rather strange Swiss German dialect with strong accent,which many of other Swiss German can't understand. We have also a different intonation and the grammar differs.
That's why I sometimes thought it would be easier having a "normal" dialect. I am kind of detected immediately when just speaking one single word. That bothers me quite a bit.
I like French. I think when I am speaking French you cant detect my dialect. That's a fact I like. And when speaking Standard German you can make that out from 100 km away... Hhahahahhahah.
