      Came here to advertise? Read first   12/05/2016

      Over the last few months, there's been a huge increase of members coming here just to advertise their own products, services, or whatever.
      This is fine, but the "General Discussions" section is not the right place. If you came here to advertise anything you made or provide yourself, do this here.
      If you came here to advertise anything you love to use, do it here. Thank you for your understanding. And remember: anything we consider spam is subject to the ban hammer. Any smash is available free of charge.

    A mí creo que los dialectos más fáciles serían los del oeste del Río Mississippi o tal vez los cercanos a Londres. Creo que esos son los más estándares entre todas las variaciones del inglés. Sobre todo el hecho que el inglés tiene tantas variaciones en la pronunciación es el desafío verdadero por ellos que quieren aprenderlo dado que por lo mayor los idiomas europeas (y de otras partes en general) son totalmente o casi totalmente fonéticas. Yo que tú no me preocuparía por como sea mi acento. Es más importante que aprendas la gramática irregular o la multitud de vocabulario que tendrás que superar si quieres hablar con fluidez. ¡Buena suerte!

    Yes, you explained yourself correctly, I just wasn't sure what that term meant. As for the topic, here's an example. Northern Chinese speakers (Harbin, Beijing ,etc) pronounce the r similar to how it's pronounced in US and Canadian English, so they have an easier time imitating those accents than the British accent. But I don't know if it's easier to understand for this reason. I also don't know if it makes a big difference or a small difference. Are those other examples made up, or have you read something that supports those similarities? It's somewhat interesting to me.
