How long does it take to pick-up an accent?
I was just wondering if I move to England for college, how long would it take me to lose my American accent and acquire an English one. I would be 18 when I leave and don't really plan on moving back to the states unless I have difficulty renewing my Visa. So, I just need to know would it be just a little while, or more like 10 years. I don't know if this effects anything but, when I went to New York for two weeks I picked up an accent without trying and that was just last January. So, I do pick things up fairly fast. Thanks for the help!
