SO WHAT’S WITH THE ACCENT? In the English Language, I mean.
When talking about the English Language people often specify: “I speak British English.” or
“I speak American English.”
How many kinds of English Languages are there really?
Many times people declare they speak some kind of English or another? Does that really exist? Is it more a specification of the accent someone has along with minor differences in vocabulary?
Certainly there are differences between “American and British English”. They are so minor that you can feel safe in knowing that when traveling and using any kind of CORRECT English you will be understood.
English Language Learners strive to learn a second language as well as possible. Some are good at mimicking and copying accents. Some learners may be exposed to American teachers while others to Canadian, British or even Russian teachers teaching English. Does that make one better than the other? As long as the English you are learning and using is correct the accent should be the least of worries.
How can you sound American or British or Australian for that matter, when you are neither? Is it possible to have true and delightful conversations with English speakers from around the world? YES! SEDA College strives to provide quality education in the English Language no matter where you are from or where you are going. SEDA provides a complete emersion program filled with extracurricular activities as well as with meaningful experiences.
These provide students the opportunity to practice their English all day everyday. It is not a matter of learning English to pass a test. It is a matter of learning English for life. The skill of being able to communicate in another language especially English will give you a great edge in may situations.
The point of the matter is not the accent but your ability to communicate and transmit what you desire to.
