Warning: I am going to ramble again on accent and languages...
Somebody else told me today at work that I got a twang when I speak in English. And of course she couldn't find out where I was from. When I communicate in French, I now do it through my writing, either on this blog, or when I write an email or updates on Facebook. Of course I call my parents from time to time, but overall I speak little French. But even though I speak in English most of the time, I still don't speak like a native. I don't know why: I can with Italian but not English. I find it slightly insulting when people think I'm French. I mean my accent is not that bad. And it's not like I am very French in look, or manerism or whatever. I don't even feel French culturally I guess I am condemned to be foreign and exotic, wherever I go. To sound exotic too. Well, exotic at best, foreign at worst. These are two different perceptions.
