Using an Accent upon a Language for which it was NOT intended! :P

Have you ever spoken in a foreign language with an accent that was...

- Not your native accent, and...

- Not the accent for that language?

(Either deliberately or by accident.)

On my second language trip to Berlin, my German class was populated mostly by Swiss-French students. We were always conversing with each other, and virtually everyone in the class had a strong French accent. After a few weeks, I was starting to speak German with a French accent! "Diiie IiinZEl an Derrrrr Kuuste LIEgt!"

It was all very silly, but fun!
