Do you feel it is rude to not pronounce words like they do in their originating countries, (pronouncing the J in jalapeno)?
Its not rude it just sounds idiotic
It's not rude, but pronouncing the J in jalapeño sounds pretty ridiculous.
When you go to a non English speaking country, do they all adopt American accepts when saying your name or other English words?
No, because they know its silly.
Ever hear the French pronounce hamburger? Do you feel the same for other countries pronunciation of American words?
On the other hand, it is pretty ridiculous when someone speaking english trills their "r's" when saying a random Spanish word
Lol, it doesn't sound like it was meant to
Yes it does.
Accents - not accepts.
Screw you, autocorrect.
Might be a little ignorant but I wouldn't think rude.
Oops, said the same thing above, sorry
I think it is only rude if you are purposely doing it to someone's name. Otherwise, it just makes you sound kind of dumb if done with a common word.
I agree with everyone so far
I have used that app before. Well, my students complain about Spanish being so hard and it is pretty phonetic. I can't imagine teaching them Danish then! :)
I don't think it's rude to fit into the typical dumb American stereotype. I just feel like the dumb American stereotype if I don't at least TRY to sound right. Plus they make fun of you in front of you if you don't try.
That worked perfectly, thank you. I like the sound of it. I am a language person (I teach Spanish) so I am always interested in hearing different ones.
I always try to. Being of Mexican decent, I face palm at the pronunciation Americans give to some of our food.
No I haven't :D
I don't speak Spanish, but my brother speaks some and he has said it's easy because it's phonetic
I wish we had an audio button. I'd love to hear you say it!
This is what I think too.

Choose from English to Danish. Enter Copenhage (yes without the n, not sure why but when I enter the n, the suggestion is wrong). It should then suggest København. There's an option to hear it.
It's accurate. I've used this many times, it's fun to hear other languages.
Interesting, I knew you're a teacher but not Spanish. If you're interested google has a translate app. It works pretty well.
Danish is difficult to speak because we don't say what we write, like English some letters can give very different sounds
No, how many of you can say København (Danish for Copenhagen).
