There’s this guy I really like, however he has a Nigerian accent and sometimes when I talk to him it’s really hard to understand what he’s saying, I don’t want to come across as offensive by saying it’s hard to understand him and asking him to speak slower but I’m not sure how else to resolve it?

I don't think there is anything wrong with saying speak slower. it happens to me all the time because I am not only naturally quiet, I also tend to slur, skip words and talk too fast resulting in next to indecipherable speech. I always get told to speak up/ slower. I don't have a problem with being told I'm a question mark so what's wrong with having a thick accent? then again, I have been told I act like an autistic person numerous times so maybe I'm not the best person to go off
