I have been speaking English for 11 years, I still have a slight Chinese accent, i have been trying to get rid of it. In my opinion, Chinese heavily accent English do not sound pleasant to my ears. Chinese is a tonal language, it sounds flat, and all words have the same length, speaking Chinese is kinda like machinegun firing, while English has some melodies. many Chinese ESL people, when they speak English, they speak like with no melodies just like in Chinese. Since I am learning Spanish, I wonder how Chinese accent in other languages sound like?
