Many of us have preconceived notions about people’s accents. We find Western European accents—French, British, Castilian Spanish, Italian—relatively appealing, while Asian and Mexican accents are experienced as unintelligible or offensive….if an employee speaks French well and English only moderately well, we aren’t bothered. however, if Filipinos, for example, speak Tagalog to one another at work, the assumptions are that they are purposefully excluding English-speakers, that they are not trying to learn English, and that they don’t care. A mean-spirited quality is attributed to the behavior.

I love speaking Chinese and triggering that insecurity in monolingual English speakers. If they ask what I’m talking about, I just smile and say “nothing” in a way to make it even worse. So I guess the mean-spirited quality is somewhat true in my case.
