Out here Pakistani, Egyptian or Sri Lankan. When I visit Sri Lanka, I've been asked if I was Bangladeshi. Many times asked if I was Fijian in Oz and NZ. When I lived in Thailand I was most commonly mistaken for an Arab.

First off, I'm German/Scottish/Dutch mix.

Walking down a street in Oslo, I've had people come up to me and ask for directions in Norwegian. Same thing in Mexico City. Recently in Nova Scotia, a couple from Nashville eyed us as fellow Americans even though we hadn't said a word.

You'll still here that in the US, though rarely. Mostly amongst older people who had immediate family who had immigrated to the US, or in some areas of the South that were more remote. However, due to mass communication, regional accents and pronunciations are dying out.

its kind of hard to look Jewish, since there are so many different types of Jews, from Ashkenazi to sephardic to mizrahi to Asian and Ethiopian Jews. Many Ashkenazi Jews are very light skinned and have blonde hair, well atleast in LA, and in fact most jews today are Ashkenazi.

2- Spanish
3- French
4- Greek
5- Israeli

When judged by my looks most of the times I get mistaken for some southern nationality, most often Spanish or Italian. I used to wear my hair a lot shorter and then I was often judged French. Once when I went shopping in Antwerp, the shopkeeper even started the conversation in French, somehow I found that hugely insulting.

I am Mexican, born and rasied here. When I have been in England and Ireland, people always ask if I am from the US or from Canada. Throught Europe when I speak spanish (not in spain) people ask what part of Spain im from. But when I have been in Spain most people are clueless of where I am from, as the Mexican Spanish accent if so unique.

The first time I ordered a beer in Spain I asked the waiter "De que chelas tienes?" (What beer do you have) He stared at me as if I was talking in some wierd language. When he finally understood he asked me how I wanted the beer, so acostumed to Mexico I said "Me la traes en michelada" (With lime, salt and spices), he didn't understand, as he was refering to if I want it draft or on tap.

I can understand that. When I was studying in Spain, my flatmates were Mexican. The girl was very understandable but I had to guess what the guy was talking about until the very last day - I never got used to his very heavy accent and colloquialisms. Even Spaniards were at loss sometimes when he started to talk. However, well-educated Mexicans are always easy to understand for me - maybe because they try to eliminate obscure local expressions thanks to having been exposed to real Spanish, from Castilla.  mischievous   wink

I don't remember being mistaken for any particular nationality based on my looks (dark hair, brown eyes and very light skin), but I people are sometimes surprised when I tell them I'm Italian. Of course, if they know my name, they usually guess correctly, although it is often mistaken for Spanish: when I'm abroad, Federico invariably becomes Frederico...

As far as accents are concerned, when I speak Italian I mostly have a very slight Venetian inflection. However, since neither of my parents are 100% Italian, I grew up speaking fairly neutral Italian, or more accurately, just a generic northern Italian "accent"... there are so many different accents and inflections in Italy that it's hard to define a standard/neutral one, and I tend to adapt to the local accent when I travel around the country, so people often have trouble figuring out exactly where I'm from.

The German I was taught, on the other hand, is a very neutral Hochdeutsch, and I'm able to maintain it without too many changes when visiting different parts of Germany. I do recall being asked once if I was Bavarian - understandable, since I went to Munich very often as a kid.

I get the best (and funniest) guessing games when I speak English, however Big grin I usually speak with a British accent (and I have been mistaken for a Brit on many occasions), but if my interlocutor is American, I switch to an American accent, in which case I'm often asked where in the States I'm from (either that, or they ask if I'm British, if I mistakenly use a British expression instead of an American one). I was also mistaken for an Australian once, in Australia, and for a Canadian.

Apparently, I also have a very good accent when I speak French and Greek, since I've been mistaken for the respective nationalities at least once (and I only speak a few words of Greek)  Smile

Any Argentinian, Spaniard or Mexican can talk as obscure as it gets, or a perfectly understandable and correct language, if he/she is educated enough, that is. Also, you don't need to be exposed to Castilla Spanish to be perfectly well-educated, the same way you don't need to attend Oxford to speak good English.
