      +Peace Guard English is a constantly evolving language, it should be used to break barriers in the world. It's more foolish to think accent pronunciation cannot convey a person's views and immense knowledge. Unable to speak English correctly like a native isn't a failure. On the video when they say Indian English is better is nothing but in saracastic way. Majority of English teachers speak with correct pronunciation , but the same isn't practised out of the English class. Again Chinese and Russian English and grammar is worst, also the Persian and many more, I interact with a lot of non english speakers, the Indians are definitely easy to understand in person and on phone. Try talking to a Persian, you will pull your hair.

    So funny to see how people are proud of their accent ,sayin 'I respect my roots so my accent is all right' but don't you wanna respect people who are actually English native speakers by trying imitate their accent at least? I mean I'm OK with indian accent n i understand every single word ,however,your proudly stated 'I am Indian ,I love my country that's why I speak this way' is just ridiculous! Oh boy ,speak your first language like a pro(no problem), respecting your culture n all that stuff and when it comes to any other language - improve your pronunciation,show us some respect, too!PEACE✌

    Indians never think that their country or themselves have any problems. Your spoken English is very strange. This is true, and you are really pitiful and even lose the language of your own country. Even if you all speak English, your country is still Rubbish

    Our accent of any language, including our mother tongue is the result of the influence of our family, social group, school and the media. There is no good or bad accent. Even in primarily English speaking countries, there is a wide variety of accents. What is more important is if the persons we try to communicate with understands us. Judging someone else's accent is arrogance.

    chinese people speak chinese...yes they have an accent because that's not their main language. Very few chinese know english until now where it's in more schools. And yes they will have bad grammar because THEY LITERALLY SPEAK CHINESE. I doubt Indians can be grammatically correct in Chinese let alone write it.

    Bloody hell 😂 As an Indian, I apologise for their behaviour. Such arrogance! Indian accent is usually worse than the American or British accent, after all English ain't our native language. But a lot of Indians still have a more neutral English accent, those who have spoken English consistently and are more exposed to western media

    Accent has nothing to do with the language being correct. Every accent is fine and there's nothing wrong unless you make grammatical errors. I would also add that some of them sound rude to me but that Punjabi guy tho, he was too good.

She was from Dubai and she looked Indian. So there you go.

    Honestly Indians are hardworking and diligent people. I've worked with a lot of them and I tried learning programming and technical classes offered by Indian teachers but sad to say It is really hard to learn due to accent barrier. I couldn't follow their accent most of the time so I gave up, I now rather pay for American classes even though it cost more because I can follow the lessons and what the teacher was saying. No offense I still respect the hardwork but It is very hard for non-Indian to follow the thick Indian accent.

    Simple!!! Our accents are different and there is nothing that can be done about that, as far as on the Indian side, as we are really cool with it, and will soon emerge as the superpower in the coming years, taking the crown form the US. Even we don't really give a damn!! And by the way, Europeans actually sound funny when they speak English. Italians, Spanish, Portugal, Russians, Greeks, Latvians, Georgians(Georgia), et cetera et cetera!!

    Chinese, Russian, French may not speak English well in general among their society. Why? Because all these counties were not dominated by England, so they speak their own language in their own country. I don't know what to be proud of if they speak English because their entire country was dominated by another country.

    Seriously, you expect English native speakers to learn from you? Whenever I try to learn a new language like Japanese or French, I don't feel offended if native speakers laugh at me or correct my pronunciation. We should learn from the very best to improvise, and English native speakers shouldn't make fun of Indians because India has its own English accent.
    For example, the accent of Chinese speakers in China, Taiwan, and Malaysia/Singapore differ a lot, and we make fun of each other accent because we know it's funny for both parties to hear each other talk. Chinese and English are so widespread that each country may have a different accent.
    I have no issue comprehending different Chinese and English accents unless they have really thick and broken English.

    What's funny is they keep saying "proper gramatical blablabla" while in real life, native speaker always mistaken their grammar. I'm not a native speaker, I taught myself english through films, songs, and talking to the natives. I find it more challenging, and easier than trying to build the right grammar first in your head then spill it out of your mouth. I studied the grammar at school and I did good. People with a good English always say "do not confuse yourself with the grammar"
    And guess what, I can speak fluently without an accent and people always think I'm a native speaker.
    Now I'm trying to learn french, but it's hard cuz I don't like French movies nor I like their songs. The pronunciation is a bit easy cuz I learned how to read Arabic when i was a kid, I find them have a very similar pronunciation.

    Those crying about the Indian Accent should understand one thing: A majority of us can speak and understand English in spite of the fact that this is not our mother tongue. Moreover many of us are definitely better in proper usage of grammar and can write better English. How many of you can speak Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Malyalam, Kannada, Telegu and huge variety of other languages spoken in India? And FYI we do not speak 'Indian' as there is no language called 'Indian' on this planet.
