On a recent visit to China, I experienced accent frustration at the Summer Palace trying to speak Mandarin. The people I met in China, like this charming woman, were very patient with me as I tried to communicate with them.
I’m sure your English pronunciation is much better than my Mandarin. But, you probably have your own stories about the frustrations of speaking an American English accent. Please share comments about your experiences at this post.<-- email this post to a friend!
