You would be suprised when I first married my hubby "midwestern yank" we seen how even speaking the same language there is translation and expressions that are different and alot of differences in the way we see cultures and other people. The other day a woman said to me "your accent is beautiful is it Irish? I said no Scottish! Haha then she responded "You speak english so well" How long have you been speaking English??!! I wanted to beat her with my besom!
My Mom still has a very thick British accent, now she is in the retirement home, she is the only Brit. She has always been asked if she is German or Scottish,lol... She says, oh no, i am from Great Britain, then some say, where is that??? lol... She says, have you heard of England?? Then she just laughs it off, as she is used to it.....Then they say, you mean London???? lol....... I have had to translate proper English for my Mom my whole life, so no biggie..... I used to be the litte Welsh girl when i first came to the states, and i remember that well. So, in my 51 years, i have lived in Great Britain, Canada, and now the deep South of the USA. My accent is odd,lol...... and i have learned a lot of slang to fit in over the years.. anyway, off the subject,,, oops!!!! I reakon i had better get back in line,lol...
