Whenever I hear an Icelander speak English, they usually speak with an accent which to me just sounds plain silly and the idea that politicians speaking for the hand of the Icelandic people actually have it in them to appear on TV and speak English with that godawful accent usually makes me laugh on the inside. What does UG think?

Anyway, the point of learning English if it isnt' your native language is so you can communicate, it isn't so you can learn to talk like the Queen.

That guy is able to communicate fine. If you are too immature to get past his nationality then you are a retard.

I would like to point out that I myself am an Icelander and although I may not speak perfect english, I don't speak with the typical Icelandic accent. Also, I have no problem with any other accent I've heard, so it has nothing to do with prejudice.

I don't think you know what that word means.
