Accents

August 17, 2007 at 1:54 pm (Italy, studies)

Throughout my life I’ve always been told that I have a very English accent, some say posh, some say BBC and others say just plain. So, it came as a shock when, on Wednesday, I was told by an Italian lady that I didn’t have an English accent. I couldn’t quite understand what she was trying to say and wondered if she meant that when I spoke English I didn’t have a regional accent. When I asked for clarification, she replied, “No, when you speak Italian”. Wow! The biggest compliment ever, to be told by an Italian lady that I don’t sound English when I speak her language! I am very chuffed with myself and have a sense of renewed confidence; bring on the job interviews!
