Not really, Mortimer. You definitely sound like you have a foreign accent, and that's because you were born and raised in, and continue to live in Austria. But there's nothing wrong with that, be proud of who you are. On a good note, I DID understand everything you said. So your English pronunciation is QUITE good.

I'd say EASILY Arnold. You're MUCH easier to understand.

But to me, Mortimer IS a bit easier to understand. Arnold STILL sounds like he came from Austria yesterday, IMO.

I understood what Mort said but maybe it's because I was intently listening?

I really dont know how americans really sound but for some strange reason I think I dont have a heavy accent. I dont know why I think that. I think I sound a bit neutral.

That's normal.

You're used to listening to you!


I sound like a Canadian with a Boston accent

He said I'm da real gangsta, da real boy from the hood, da real G.

Awesome.

Mortimer, you should write a rap song. And make a video. I swear to God you would make $millions.

Mort, try doing a rap song.

I have heard that Schwarzenegger can actually speak without the thick accent; however, he keeps the accent because it is expected of him. It is part of his persona.
