My new Australian acquaintance (a really nice girl that I met tonight) was surprised when I told her I was from Sweden. She said she’d definitely guessed English.
You see, the trick is to use a British accent. No Swede does, they all speak either American or Sviidish-Inglish. (Which is a great party trick, by the way! Probably not in Sweden though.)
So tonight: confidence-to-speak-English stronger.
Until I tried to write this post in English and spelled British with two t:s.
Victory – Fail 1-1.
