When I speaqk Dutch I have a standard Dutch accent, with some elements from the Rotterdamish accent and the Tilburgish one (the Rotterdamish "o" and the Southern Dutch "g", my dad lived in Rotterdam for years and I live in Tilburg). When I speak English, I try really hard not to have an accent. When I was in London last month, I just put on my most Britishish accent, so no one would notice I was a tourist. Some people fell for it.
I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."
