Regardless of how neat the accent is, it still seems unnatural somehow, it's like a white guy trying to speak
African American English

Sometimes I briefly wonder why a chinese person is pronouncing a word so differently from me ...


Freakyqi, don't Americans customarily say "differently to" rather than "differently from" ? I was a bit surprised to see you say it in the right way

I will just stick to my Beijinger accent. I find my former classmates parroting British accents unpleasantly dumb, trying to be something they are not and can never be.
Dream on!

I was going to say

do you mean a Chinese version of Hugh Grant

an Edward Fox would be even stranger!

an Anthony Hopkins

that's the one to aim for

a hint of Welsh is what is required
"We know it's weakness, but the weakness is so strong!"
