native speakers always think they are the greatest :DD
I don't care
It annoys me when fellow Brits take the piss out of someone because of their broken English
don't care. I kinda like foreigners speaking in broken english, kinda funny (not laughing at them of course, that would be mean :P)
it can be annoying but i normally havent gave a shit, normally the people who cant fully speak have it better off
Depends. If they try to speak shit, then I might take the piss...
Why would someone give a shit about someones pronunciation
I can understand it as long as they can speak slowly regardless if broken or with heavy accent.
No it doesn't really bother me
I dont mind if its someone on holiday or something like that, but it does annoy me a bit when someone has been living in a country for 10+ years and cant be bothered to learn the language.
I don't think most people care as long as they understand what the person is saying. But I think the bar for speaking with a "native" accent is a bit lower for English since there are so many countries and regions with their own variants for what makes a "native" accent. For instance, I might hear a Finn who has been speaking English for 15+ years and I might notice that his voice is a bit nasally. I would sooner presume that he's from some weird part of the English speaking world or just has a nasal voice rather than him having a slight Finnish accent.
bad grammar isn't annoying, it's pretty common in the US, but I am bad at understanding English with certain accents, so when someone speaks too fast and the words slur, it can get annoying
The only accent that bothers me is the english accent. How can you be so bad at speaking the language you invented? smh
It really isn't unless they can't speak basic English or can't make callouts in English - then, it indeed is really annoying. But I can't blame them, it's every1's own decision to learn or not to learn English, but in CS it's kinda required. The same way I don't speak their language (altho sometimes it happens that I understand what they are saying) they don't speak mine nor the UK's native language.
i really don't care, i hear so many different accents on a daily basis, and i kind of love that.
Accent is different to pronunciation, accents can't be helped but pronunciation can. if you intend to be anywhere for an extended period of time you need to learn to converse with the locals properly imo
If someone is trying their best i wouldn't care, if anything it's nice to have another language in your arsenal.
If it's some asshole trying to look smart, i'll make sure he'll look dumb.
How can you get annoyed at somebody speaking a second language poorly when you can only speak one language
sometimes they get annoyed I have noticed , and then they realize we speak 3, 4 or more languages while they just speak one
It’s only annoying when I work with people who have lived in Australia for 10+ years and I STILL can’t understand them because they are lazy or don’t give a fuck.
Doesn't matter to me one bit. If I don't understand I try to help them, and I am grateful for them to be learning my native language
I'm not a native speaker but with russians I like to drop down to their level of communicating to feel them better. When I hear broken english I speak broken english back because it helps them understand better too.
annoying is like this one caster who commentating now rng vs g2 pronounce round as riound grrr
non native but english is an ez language
I mean, I can understand what most people are saying with an accent but sometimes if they have no english knowledge what so ever it can be frustrating
i like the fact that everyone has to cuck themselves into learning an additional language because of uk
I've been friends with non-natives since early childhood, so growing up around people that spoke broken-english made it easy to understand it.
Am I the only one who noticed that there are two #4 comments in this thread?
