    Hahaha, thank you :lol:

    I guess it is, but I like having RP
    It is nice but people think I am snobby with the accent. It isn't like I chose the accent, the accent chose me lol.

    Yeah grammar is a piss take lol. I study English Language at A Level and it is so boring.
    I know, I attended some classes for AS English, and left after two days . I didn't left because it was boring, but it requires a lot of writing and writing.

    There is no right way haha. It depends on the accent. Scon is how people with RP would say it tbh.

    Really? I find it is more technical than demanding for writing.

    I find the accent quite entertaining, like the people are funny and loads of comedians are from there.

    I've been told I'm closer to a neutral accent more than anything else. Although every now and then I can sound like a real brummie (yes I live in Birmingham).

    I usually think on how to improve the overall body of the paragraph. I like creative writing, so yeah. Because language is all about creativity.
