Tips for eliminating accents in foreign languages? :o
I had a Russian oral exam yesterday, and had a bit of feedback from it today. Apparently my language was fine (
) but apparently the external examiner (bitch from Cambridge
) found my accent was 'not as accessible', whatever the fuck that means. It didn't help that everyone in my class is from England, and therefore have more 'accessible' accents, tsk...
It's may be a bit of a long shot to ask here, but does anyone have any self-elocution tips?
Scottish twangs are ugly anyway, so I won't miss it
Thanks in advance (hopefully)
