I found an audio recording from my freshman year in college of me reading a speech for the ESL (English as a Second Language) class. I pronounced words in a thick accent.
The first letter of a word is the most important letter in the pronunciation of English. The teacher will let the student repeat the pronunciation of the first letter and finish with the pronunciation of the entire word. In this piece Bleach, I only kept the pronunciation of the first letter in echoing this learning process. Language is a code. The unauthentic pronunciation is a barrier that separates the outsiders from the insiders. Striping away accent is the only way to fit into the society.
