So my Curiosity Monday entry is about language accents. I was watching a show where an Asian lady who was born and raised in Malaysia moved and studied in Cambridge to become a chef. What sparked my curiosity in her accent. She has a heavy British accent like she was born and raised in Europe/England/London. But she said she was born and raised in Malaysia so why doesn’t she have a Asian accent ?
Why did a couple years spent in Cambridge leave her with a heavy British accent ?? It made me wonder if she’s just faking the British accent or if she really lost her Asian Accent and gained a British accent. I mean do you seriously lose who you are verbally by just spending a couple years in another country ? If I moved to China for a couple years will I forget my Japanese and become fluent in Chinese and speak with a Chinese Accent ? It’s something that I ponder.
