I agree with Brennus,just a child have chance to change or overcome to accents.we really can do that hardly 'cos we used to express them.

I just partially agree with you Brennus.
People can change their accent, less or more if they "work it out".
If they are not very young yes I agree..they will never get red of the accent, but they can improve it.
I came over USA 10 years ago when I was 28 and I believe I changed my accent.
I will post a sample of my speach soon to see if you even can tell me where I am from.
