Hi... It is really hard to have no native accent... but it is a question of practice!!!

An American accent, often with a trace of a Korean accent. I have two accents for my native tongue, one is a chirpy accent being spoken in cities including Seoul, the other one is a thick southern accent. My southern accent is helping me to nail down a British accent(I'm interested in Estuary English being spoken in the southeast England).

I actually drop my Aussie accent when overseas, but it takes a bit of practice. In the most extreme cases, I start developing an eastern-European tone when I do speak English. This has proven handy. ;) However, speaking other languages (French, Italian) a British tone creeps in. Returning to Australia, it's common for locals to assume I'm British or Irish. Not deliberate. I've deliberately put an Italian accent into my Indonesian speech - long story why, but it saved me a lot of trouble!
