Accent Betrayal

Dutch people coming home from Germany speaking Dutch in slight German accent get confused for Germans


NEW: Comic Suggestion Box!

This week's strip was written by Jonathan Tolksdorf, an enterprising Itchy Feet fan who had an idea for a comic, sketched out a very rough version, and sent it to me. Not only do I think he captured the Itchy Feet humor perfectly, he also did it from the perspective of another culture, something I could never achieve. So I redrew it and featured it as the comic you see above.

Which made me think - all you readers have your own cultural perspectives, your own funny troubles learning languages and challenges traveling abroad, experiences I would never be able to communicate because I'm just one person. What about the Japanese perspective? Or the Bolivian perspective? Or the half Native American, half Jewish African perspective? YOU tell ME!

There are a few ground rules, but you'll learn all that on the Suggestion Box page.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!
