This video is the first part of two videos aimed to answer the question: how do I keep my own accent when I am surrounded by foreign speakers? Before we talk about the how, we look at the why– why does your accent change when you’re around people who sound different from you in the first place? It all comes down to human adaptability, but stay tuned for Part 2 if you’d like to stay grounded in your own accent.
Does this sound like your own experience? Let us know what questions this brings up for you.
Take good care!
