    When you hear a person speaking english, what sounds are predominant?

    For example, I speak only english and if I hear french I hear "ool" "noor" and perhaps some "ss"

    Spanish from Spain seems to be "lispy". Lots of "swippshy swippshy" sounds, while spanish from Argentina is much more sharp and clear.

    The german I hear has a mix of hard consonants broken up by flowing vowels.

    Most asian languages sound like a kind of song sounded through the nose. Lots of "ar" "aw" and sharp consonants.

    I was trying to figure it out myself and thought it must sound quite muffled.
