Accent&pronunciation I found it very hard to get the right accent.  I recently came up with the idea that  pronunciation has a lot to do with the accent. Indeed, if you pronounce each word correctly,  then you are likely to get the right accent. Therefore, having a strong accent means nothing but mispronouncing the words. And mispronouncing a word means to not pronounce the word as a native speaker does.

Within a language (say English), people have a variety of accents, some of which may be considered strong by other speakers. In this case, a person with a strong accent would not be mispronouncing a word but rather pronouncing it differently. That doesn't mean that their accent is not "right."

I just cannot pronounce words with L correctly.

I see.   However, not for me but maybe for you. I mean as a non-native speaker I need to be understood by native speakers and for that  I have to have an accent similar to a native one. Of course, it does not matter if the native accent, which I chose to sound like it, is not the common accent in the language

It's great because you at least know it, so you can improve it
