I naturally speak normal Japanese, but can also speak Kansai dialect because I've been living in Osaka since I was three years old. I was born in Nagasaki, though.
For example, if I talk to someone who from Tokyo or from outside the Kansai-area, I can immediately realize it.
It is said that there are some absolute differences between Osaka's Japanese and Tokyo's Japanese.
So occasionally, there are people who hate the Osaka's accent.
I have a question here.
If you talk to a foreigner who is a native English speaker, can you immediately tell where someone is from,even if you don't know about the person.
For instance, if an American talks to a Canadian, do they immediately realize where the other comes from?
