    fake modesty

    i have a middle eastern calssmate who can speak perfect american accent

    when teacher praise him in class he said sth which made me vomit

    ' my accent may sound native but doesn't mean my english is better than yours, your organization is good ( while all of our english sucks), english doesn't only include pronounication

    pronunciation is everything! I can understand 'food me hungry!' but when it's mispronounced. No idea!

    Go to McDonalds and order three large fries... I guarantee you it will sound like 'free large flies' hahaha

    order somes crisps in LA... you'll get sent to East LA when you ask for 'kripps'

    I already offered. Guess it's B.E trolling in disguise!
