Why do you try so hard to cover your accent. What is it about the beauty of our native language that you try so hard to disguise it. Does it not hurt killing what little you have left to hold onto of our culture in what remains in your accent. Embrace speaking with an accent don’t be ashamed of it. There is beauty in speaking the second language with the influence of our native language. Forget those that say you are pronouncing it wrong. Blame them for not hearing right. So for every other language you may choose to learn in the future be proud of the accent you carry from your lengua nativa when you speak it.
