Coasting Through Your Accents

| Learning | April 24, 2017

(It’s Drama class, and we are assigned a project where we partner up and write a sketch. I’m actually pretty proud of my handiwork and we perform it for the class. I should note that although I have some vocal tics (I speak faster than most and have a slightly nasally voice) I have no discernible accent. After we’re done, I get this note…)

Drama Teacher: “Good job, [My Name]. I liked the writing and your timing. But could you run it once more without the stupid East Coast accent?”

Me: “[Drama Teacher]… This is how I’ve always talked.”

(He’d known me for three years!)
