Have you thought this before?
Being someone who speaks English; I have always wondered what I sound like to other language speakers. Its a really hard concept to wrap your mind around, when its something you know so well. I specifically remember thinking this when I was a kid, and I still think it, from time to time. "I wonder if I sound, like they do to me?". I grew up in Detroit, Michigan, which is a really culturally diverse place, so I had plenty of exposure to different languages.
I believe I have found the answer! I seen a video titled, "How English sounds to non-English speakers", and it grabbed my attention. I thought,"How would they even go about giving and example?". Well it turns out, they did a great job, and it helped me understand this weird thing; your own language sounding foreign to you.
If you speak English, and have ever wondered this, watch the video.
Here it is.
@kotturinn maybe you can tell me if this is how English sounded to you; before you mastered it. Haha
