Acquiring FOREIGN accent

Natives are always trying to acquire other accents of their language, but do they ever try to acquire foreign accents. I would quite like to acquire an 'Eastern European' accent. What do you think? In my neighbourhood there are many immigrants and I prefer interacting with them over my fellow countrymen, and sometimes by accident I find myself saying a word like they do, for example, pronouncing 'h' like Russian 'х' etc.
