I recently met a guy who could tell my nationality from my accent (at the end of a few words that had nothing to do with where I’m from). I had no idea there was something like Turkish accent, but apparently there is.
this is me whenever i try to speak portuguese over here in porto! they hear my accent and reply in english no matter what. xD
Don’t we love our “a” “e” and “r” Turkish accent is one of the very obvious ones I think.
I am so happy to hear from you Anjelica! Are you going to make comics about your travel adventures?
i really should! so far i have just been drawing but not making comics, cause i have soooo much work for my classes. but soon i will have a break and i hope to start then.
in vienna, i went into a coffee shop and said “hallo”. the owner immediately started to speak english. well, i have a very broken german. but still, how come? i asked him. he told me that it was not the accent, but the tiny gap after the “hallo”. he simply could deduce that i hesitated making small talks in german from a nanosecond of silence.
