When you hear someone speaking English, which category do you fall into?

Asked by dumitus (657points) July 19th, 2015

Let’s say you meet somebody,
and the person speaks fluent English.
But it is clear he/she speaks English with a foreign accent.
It seems possible that English is not his/her first language.

In this case, what is your reaction?

1) I don’t care in what kind of accent they speak,
or if English is their mother tongue.
As long as I can understand them, it’s okay. I never mind.

2) I can tell that this guy speaks English not as a
mother tongue the moment I hear them speak.
To be frank, It starts to get on my nerves..
I’d rather speak with one who speaks English my way.

3) Usually I can’t tell just by listening to them speaking English.
Maybe they are from another English speaking country.
