can he please look at andrew garfields american accent in The Amazing Spiderman? I thought it was great but I'm curious what he thinks

Honestly the American accent seems so easy for people. I really cant tell fake American accents in movies the way British people can tell fake British accents.

I'm not sure Kidman was actually trying to do a clean American accent in Big Little Lies. I don't think it's ever specified that she's a U.S. born & bred person. She just sounds like an Aussie who's lived in America most of her life. She's usually very careful and prepared when she takes on an accented role so I think it's unfair to pick on her accent here, when it may not have even been intended.

In the Xhosa accent, the speakers strongly pronounce the "R" sound. All accents in South Africa do that, including some variants of South African English (to a lesser degree), unless the speaker has learned to pronounce his/her words closer to standard English. So, that actress should have pronounced the word "improve" as "impRRRove" .(kind of like the Scottish would).

That makes me so gratefull for opera - because in real singing you lose your accent - unless you deliberately try to keep the accent. But that runs into other problems, which probably have something to do with the overtones that are a whole number (?) of octaves above the basic tone. In German there is the Umlaut (f.i. ä) which I suppose is a question of half octaves(?). Beethoven was aware of the problem; but did not reach a conclusion. We need to get to Wagner throwing the third tone of the triad in the orchester - which is one of the reasons why Wagner is not suited for piano recitals.

This guy needs to watch Killing Eve Also my mum is Vietnamese and she doesn’t speak like that but this is after almost 20 years of practicing her English more. She tries her best but I can see similarities between Hong Chau’s Vietnamese accent and my mum’s/Vietnamese relatives learning English accent.

Real Russians would never say 'neveRRRR', they (we) would just say 'neve'. Also, an accent is only that bad when you hardly speak English. With Lawrence's perfect grammar and vocab (common mistake with movie 'foreigners'), she could not have possibly retained an accent like that. Also, Killing Eve's so-called 'Russian' is horrible beyond words. I just wish they hired someone who actually spoke the language and given the amount of Russians everywhere in the world, that should really not be a problem. In fact, it would be my dream job, now that I think about it!
