    LoL! Trevor, what you would do to speak with different members of your family actually has a name. That's called "code-switching."

    I FEEL this.. I grew up in Dubai where every person in my class was of a different nationality. I’m Bosnian but I’ve got a very neutral/ American accent (from what I’ve been told) but I change mine to adapt to the person I’m speaking with (i.e. Indian, Arab, etc.) I call it the Expat accent, a bit of every accent smashed into one.

    I'm South African and I speak all 11 of our official languages. I can relate to what Trevor is saying. I always change my accent according to who talking to. I'm Tsonga, when I speak to some of my elderly relatives in Limpopo I have to speak the deep Tsonga and change my accent so they can understand me better. But with friends and any younger person I switch to slang. Our languages are so diverse. I've realised that in most places when you switch to someone's accent they receive you better because they feel like you are one of their own.

    As a Haitian i can 100% confirm his statement, when we're around regular people and a few Haitians we're totally Americanized, but as soon as you put us in a space with only Haitians or we're back in Haiti it's as if the spirit of our ancestors took over our body lmfao

    Fact check: Model C is not private school. That's a misrepresentation. They were the former "white" schools during Apartheid and which subsequently became open to all races.

    My mom does that. She speaks with an Arabic accent when she's speaking with my Arab cousins, even though my mom is a white American.

    Your dad would be like, "Put volume! Put volume!"And then you would be like, "Uh, do you mean increase the volume?""Hey! I'll increase or decrease your life! Don't act smart here. Put volume! Don't come here with that English!"Oh my gosh, this is hilarious!

    Has Trevor talked about what's going on in his country South Africa? there is a massive xenophobic massacre out there, why is he silent about it (if so)

    Ha ha ha... Have you ever been to the linguistic mess that is Haiti, Trevor? It's crazier than you can ever imagine. Have you ever seen 5 people hold a conversation in 3 different languages, jumping from one to another, starting a sentence in one and finishing it in another, asking a question in one and having it answered in another like it's the most natural thing in the world? That's how we do it. 😂
