Nowadays it is very important if not necessary to know a second language, especially if it is English which is considered the most international and spoken one today. I also think that Chinese and Spanish will soon be added to this category.
Hello everybody! Have you ever thought of how wonderful the sound of a language is? And at the same time how strange a non-native speaker sounds, especially when he or she has a different pronunciation from his/her native language?
Why do we smile every time a foreigner tries to speak our native language?
We smile because his/her pronunciation sounds funny to us, or am I wrong?
But today I propose to you a few Italian tongue-twisters read by some foreigners who live in Oslo, because I would like you to listen to their different accents and underline the beauty of each. That means I laugh because every accent sounds incredible to me and I don´t laugh at them, to be clear ;D!
