8 years ago I was a freshman at Troy Uni, decided out of the blue that I wanted to speak English with a distingtive accent in order to getting rid of my vietnamese accent at the time, which was quite a roadblock when I started to talk in classes to professor. My grammar was ok and all, just the accent was what made it hard to grasp, talked to Dr. Josh who was teaching Business Law, he was kind of a cowboy background guy from Albama, I like the way he talk, the accent and pronunciation was on the point, sounded was just great, I was amazed.
Later that day, on Google googled till night on the little samsung phone researching about how to speak the American sounthern accent then I stumbled upon the country song, it is the country song for me for a few reasons at the time, would love to talk about someday. Anyway, the song name is “Some day” by Alan Jackson, the same singer who sings “Remember When” in Up disney.
“I found it, my passion” talked to myself at the time, listened to hundreds of songs from modern to classic country with big brand name like Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, Travs Tritt, Brad Paisley, Brooks and Dunn, Josh Turner, David Ball and more… These guys have taught me a whole bunch of good and dandy lessons for life, love and work.
“My life was changed from then”.
Indeed it was, I was able to talk with different professors at college about almost everything anf they had fun talkting to me because I was sounded just like them, during the time I had encountered and hangout with many american backpackers and even started my first ever business which was an English Center in Tân Phú with them, it was a good time.
