If you are from Northern England, Scottish or Irish have an accent while speaking English you are classified as Scottish.

Depends.
Sometimes I had the feeling that there are 5 things and only one word for it, whereas in my native language I feel the other way round .

Each language has its own beauty and own uniqueness. I tend to think that with french even a declaration of war sounds like a love poem and in russian a love poem like a declaration of war. The only thing I can not stand is language mixture. Nowadays many people try to use english terminology hoping they would sound more intelligent.

I think the big question is the accents we hear...
Back when I was in ELA, english was no different than the rest...

What was different was how people pronounced it..
Like Rednecks, Africans and British speaking English..
Plus Hispanics with Spanglish...
