Is accent really that bad?
An accent isn't bad, everybody has an accent of some kind. Then you've got country accents, British accents, Aussie accents, ect.. Nothing wrong with it at all, although I sometimes find it difficult to understand certain accents that I don't hear on a regular basis. Bad pronunciation is basically something that someone does who isn't understanding how to pronounce a word correctly. Example; If I was reading, and pronounced "house" like "hose", or "balloon" like "ball-on", simply because I didn't know how to pronounce those words, then it would be considered bad pronunciation. If someone pronounces a word a little differently because they have a different sounding voice, then that is because of their accent.
Everyone has an accent, it simply means the way you speak. But bad pronunciation is a whole different thing, it means you dont know how to say the word...
