Curious how speakers in other countries including non-native speakers pronounce English?  Check out the Speech Accent Archive.

Sure, it’s natural to make fun of someone’s accent.  But what makes someone’s English sound non-native?  From a linguists point of view, this site breaks down various speakers accents and makes generalizations about their phonology, how they mispronounce things.

For example, compare a Khmer native speaker’s English to a Vietnamese person.  Or a Japanese and a Korean.
