So they say you've got a laowai accent? Who cares! So does everyone else. It would be nice to take comfort in this fact... if it weren't that it makes it so hard to understand. Be it northern, southern, northeastern, southeastern, southwestern... you get the idea... they're as partial to their accents as they are to their food. So don't resist--embrace the multi-varied sounds of Chinese and listen to this lesson to figure out what the heck everybody's saying.
