me trying to say squirrel... (oh the things you make me do..)
(#) AdnarimSmada 2012-11-02 08:59:02 AMOh my dear you were so close. Not a half bad job actually, you'd probably pass in some regions. There is a little more emphasis on the last part like the name Earl. It's hard to describe. You friend: oh no. I don't even...
Eichhörnchen with the h and then sch thing, I don't know how that would be able to work with my English trained mouth. It baffles my mind. I can't even do the double h deal in the middle of a word and then there's that accent point, ugh...
Whatever, I had fun.
I enjoy your accent severely but that's me being creepy again, seriously Germans=favorite accented people ever.
P.S: I bet your jealous of my friend Nathan who can say squirrel in both languages because he grew up in the United States with grandparents who taught him German. (They are from western Germany and junk though I believe.)
P.P.S: What does my so-called American accent sound like to you? I'm just curious. It is fun to have opinions of people around the world.
Author's responsehaha really? okay i'll say squearl from now on then XD
we germans have the nasty habit of reading things out the way they're written, because our language pretty much sounds like we spell things, so we always want to pronounce it the weird way the people in that video you watched did (yes, i looked that up...)
what's whith my friend? xD
oh so that was your problem? it's not actually that you say two h out loud. the first one belongs to the ch and after that it's just a simple h. and i guess the ö hard. you did well though :D
if you seperate the words eichhörnchen translates to something like oak-horn or better, oak-croissant xD
as i'm german it's hard for me to actually hear my accent, but i guess it sounds funny to your ears...
now that's just not fair xD
you know, when my scottish exchange partner was here her teacher brought her daughter, who had obviously learned german as a foreign native speaker or something, because the woman was german...well, she could express herself perfectly fine, but she still had an accent simply because she wasn't born here.
but it's awesome that he's learning german. west germany you say? i'm from the south west^^
to germans american accents sound like they don't even have ps or ts anymore because they just say budder instead of butter, but many people like american english because it doesn't sound as 'arrogant' as british english.

As for my speaking, it's good to know that I don't sound as arrogant as people from the UK. On the point of your accent (not just yours alone, any German mind you), I do not find it funny bad imitation here Katie, emphasis I kind of heard you putting on the syllables of your own name over, I find it attractive, like, very much so. About as much as Jane was fangirling over ShadowSouls' Egyptian one.
Author's responsewell, she's good at english, but sucks at pronunciation xD
well the thing is, they sound arrogant, but they're not. they're actually quite nice :3
well i'm glad you like it as much as you do. i wouldn't be able to record random german words otherwise ;)
oh...right. recording. translating. oh
well, i still don't know how...
i laid down my ship on the keel?
