  1. Thank you.
    You did good, Norman. Thanks for taking the quiz.
    Ever listened to a Chinese, Spanish or a Japanese speaking? You would tell them, “Slow down, you’re speaking too fast.” This is when they are speaking in their own language. The same case applies to the British and Americans. If you’re learning English as a second language, you would tend to hear the native English speakers speaking very fast. This is natural.
    I usually have a problem understanding a British person when they are speaking. They tend to speak too fast with some letters not pronounced. When it comes to Americans, they tend to pronounce almost every letter in most words. Also, you have to factor stressing of syllables in a word.
    However, some languages such as Mandarin are rated as slow languages. Some of the factors that make a language to be regarded as slow is the stressing of syllables and how many words they can utter to convey something. Some languages use very few words to tell something while there are others which will use many words to mean the same things.
    This article from Times will provide some insight. It is explained clearly: http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,2091477,00.html
