    The nogueira brothers seem like really nice guys and are pretty eloquent i don't know if they were from a nice family or they just really are good with words and talking to people but they seem like really intelligent guys, outside of that they have a pretty strong northeastern brazilian accent but not overwelming like shogun's accent

    Ngannou: a mix of african/France's french accent. I can understand him clearly. Well spoken.

    GSP: he tries really hard I think to be the best role model he can be, and he must be commanded for that. But clearly, he's probably using more familiar slangs in his private life that he's using in interviews. We, quebecois, aren't as "official" as he is in his television appearances, in non-official meetings. It's pure speculations of course, but knowing where he's from, I have to think that he probably swears at least a bit when there's no cameras :p

    Probably since it's an english speaking forum and speaking your own language is annoying to people who dont understand. I used to have an Albanian Kosovar co worker, she talked Albanian almost all the time, she kept saying she wasnt talking about us, but it was so annoying. But yeah, weird.

    É engraçado que ele parece ter muito mais personalidade quando ele fala em inglês kkkkk o twitter dele é engraçado, eu acho que na real ele é um cara timido e se solta mais quando fala em inglês porquê daí ele não se leva tão a sério

    No we had another colleague from Croatia, but was Albanian too. And since he spoke much less French than her, she did all the talking in Albanian.

    I lived in Lille for a year and I still don't understand what animal he has hunted, and that's literally the main topic of the story. I don't even think I would have understood that he's talking about hunting at all if it wasn't in the title and if he wasn't in hunting gear.

    Well i dont sound american at all cause my accent is really thick but i usually need to take care when speaking english because in portuguese ( my mother tongue ) we are very direct when speaking to people and that sometimes can give you the wrong vibe in english lol

    I have been told I have a different voice when I speak english than when I speak French. Since I have never recorded myself I can't really say.

    Maia yes, he's an intteligent guy and really well spoken very nice guy all around. Aldo is far better in portuguese, he's not from a good background and doesn't make really smart remarks in portuguese but he does speaks well with what he knows. He seems like a smart guy who didn't have good education
