    It will take time plus you won't find completely relevant result. So....

    My problem:

    Shot him and shot at him. What's the difference actually?

    Shot him means that he was shot. Shot at him, u shot towards him, not necessarily he was shot. As simple as it is. Btw i am not a critic of your step. I'm just saying that it might not get that much response.

    Wasn't actually a problem. It was just to get the conversation going.

    Another one:

    Not that you would if you could. What does it mean?

    Fact: Indians in general possess way, way better English than the average Bangladeshi.

    I see no point to bring this into this conversation though...

    @Codex , they do indeed. Their accent is quite odd though. Ever noticed the way they pronounce "and"?

    Pronounce, though, you could just google that.

    And no, not really. Don't really have much experience in regards to spoken English in the Indic countries.

    I'm sorry, but Indians just plain suck at English. They have a horrible way of pronunciation. They pronounce W's as V's. For example: instead of "Whatever", they'll say "Vateva".

    Bengali's pronunciation isnt as embarrassing as Indian's, although there are some exceptions. For example: the Bengali translator/dub for Aljazeera English, i feel like beating him up.

    W's as V's? First I've ever heard that. The accent is largely the same as Bengali's and neither is 'embarassing'. It's just stuck in the head of Bangladeshi people that anything Indian = khet.

    Thats why there's always this urge to differentiate between Bangladeshi and Indian even though it doesn't make any worthwhile difference.

    You need to watch Indian TV programs, their pronunciations are horrible. I'm shocked you cant differentiate BD from indian accent. Everyone i know, knows about it.

    They say stuff like "Vat is this", "Vonderful", "Ve are Vun". They pronounce "yeah" as "iyaa". They dont pronounce R's at the end of words either, like "togetha", "vateva"...

    but not everyone pronouces W's as V's, some actually speak like this "WATT izz dis" ..... I cant be the only one who notices it, in this forum? :\

    Now why in the world will I do that lol. I've spoken to a couple of Indians and I never heard it. Most of the time I see an overemphasis on the W but never close enough to confuse it with a V
