    Even as a Mancunian, I am still impressed by his accent.

    Haha, I remember seeing one of his videos a few months ago. The Scottish accent was definitely a surprise! But hey, that's what happens. Regardless of your ethnic background, you're going to have the accent of where you grow up.

    I have a similar situation where most of my mother's family is Mexican. However, I was born in Spain (Andalusia for that matter), so I sound like a Spaniard when I speak Spanish despite having mostly Mexican ancestry. It drives my Mexican relatives crazy. But hey, I can't help it! I was born in Spain and first learned how to talk there.

    Cute icon_smile.gif I remember a scene from Y Tu Mamá También, when they were commenting on the Spanish accent.

    Are Spanish accent considered 'posh' or what in Mexico? What about the reverse?

    I've always found that funny. Many Americans like the various accents from the UK. Even some of the accents that are perceived as low class in the UK (like Essex, Cockney, Scouse, etc) still sound 'posh' to Americans.

    The same is not true regarding of Spanish between Spain and Latin America. Most Latin Americans think the Spanish accent is anything but posh. It's frequently described as sounding harsh and irritating. They also think Spaniards speak too fast and commit the worst grammatical errors (especially the excessive use of the present perfect tense).

    That is a topic all by itself! Fascinating. it's funny how the 'colonies' think the mother country speaking the language wrong icon_smile.gif

    I have had 2 failed attempted starts at learning Spanish, Always loved the tonal quality of Spanish. If I have the chance I will go live in South America for a year to learn the language.

    When I was learning it, sometimes I get Spanish and Japanese grammar confused (when I get drunk), which was a great laugh amongst my peers.

    Hey, it happens! That's because the colonies preserve some things in their language that have since disappeared in their former home country. We Americans have preserved some words and pronunciations from colonial times that the Brits have since replaced. British English has changed a lot more in the past few centuries than American English has. Same can be said of Spanish in Latin America and Spain.

    In my first year at university, I met a guy in my hall who was interesting. He was ethnically Vietnamese, but born and raised Polish. He had a Vietnamese name, but his accent in English was definitely Polish. In fact he didn't speak much Vietnamese at all. Just Polish and English.

    Canarians sound exactly like people from the Caribbean. In fact, I often can't tell them apart until a Canarian says a word that is typically Spanish rather than Latin American.

    thats because the majority of the immigration from spain into cuba and hispanoila came from the canary islands. most of the spanish calbildos of cuba came from that area. just like if you go into central america and northern south america, they are normally from the basque and northern parts of spain.

    Can't say it's too surprising. Met some Asians with interesting (and heavy) Aussie/Down Under accents when I was in New Zealand.

    And photographer Justin Tayler is a terrific photographer and person with unique lighting on his models. Check out his work:

    He is hot. I love the accent, and it is quite the surprise. It is like the Brasilian Japanese girl I met in college. She spoke no Japanese because she grew up in Brasil.

    Yuppp...this is true...and I think this is why we had and are having such a difficult time putting our family tree together...the whole Puerto Rico/Spain/Canary Islands thing threw us off haha so we my family just came to the conclusion and said screw it, at the end of the day, we're Black and Spanish. Case closed hahaha
