Confirming this based on my experience as well. My mom notices this body language difference too.

That's just one of the more noticeable body language differences; if you watch documentaries or news on East Asia, look at the passersby behind the reporter, they're usually walking how my mom wants me to: stiff, and kept very compact, close to the body.

I'm being a bit self-conscious, but I've sensed a little bit of attention towards myself in my carriage whenever I've travelled in Asia. We definitely walk around with a bit of self-assurance that doesn't end up being overly arrogant.

Haven't had my folks discourage that though, quite the opposite. Big Grin

Maybe its something to do with the contrast between what is expected of a typical Asian voices and western languages? The accents in most Asian languages are vastly different from the construct of Western languages so when you speak well or at least sound like you come from the West, it really helps.

I suspect it's more the former than the latter, reflecting the rise and fall of each. From what I've observed, American accents tend to be particularly well received in Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Indonesia, all of them countries where the US has been seen to have been an overwhelmingly positive force. Possibly Singapore too? American pop culture seems to have really taken hold there over the past decade and a bit. I know I struggled to find a non-Hollywood western film there.

It doesn't matter which city you're in, if you got an accent, you literally see their eyes brighten up as they realize you're foreign.

When you come to Australia to study, speaking American English -- not to mention emphasizing the accent -- might not hurt you, but it won't help much either. Americans aren't a huge novelty and the vernacular hasn't been in vogue since 1945.
