English accents: which one is the esier for a Spaniard?
Hi everybody. [My first discussion; I'm a bit nervous... :# ] Well, I was watching the video in this other discussion [sorry, I can't post links, it was something like british-english-vs-american-english-accents] and also reading comments. I was thinking if there are "affordable accents" depending on learner origin. I mean, e.g. I'm Spanish, so maybe I find easier to understand let's say (is an example) American accent, but I will have problems with Irish accent; does a Chinese find easier to understand Australian accent, but he's unable to get Scottish accent. Do you know if there is some link relationship between the phonetics of mother tongue and the English accent we can undersdtan better?
