Hard to tell, if he is reading off of a text or does he command that kind of fluency though with that accent!

Despite the criticism, he could do some good for himself by picking up frequent conversations with some willing tourists at Thamel.

I think this is awesome. To expect someone to not have an accent in the second language they speak is pretty dumb. I personally like people with accents - and a lot of people do too. That's variety and natural. We have created this competitive spirit in Nepal where you need to speak like Khaires. After seeing other nationalities speak with their accent, I want to see smart Nepalis talk in English with a heavy Nepali accent. Still then I think we would have lots of people, who would want to criticize that person for his accent (even though their accents are also not Khaire type) - without ever listening to what he/she had to say.

"Dumb" is a pretty strong word that you used, I think.

With this journalist's accent, pronunciation, and speedy speech, it is difficult, at times, even for a English speaking Nepali individual to understand him. Quite importantly, I did not laugh at all at this speech on the video. When I first came to the US, I would get a lot of 'what was that?' for a significant number of sentences I spoke. That is not the case anymore.

The main purpose of communication is to get your message across clearly. I bet if he reported on this news development using ISD call, he could have wasted good chunk of money during predictably "what was that?" situations. Smooth communication may get  hindered by wrong pronunciation, hurried speech, and non-native speaker tone. Actually, I commend him for rising up to the challenge to interface with a foreign journalist to report on something important. Despite all, he could easily improve on making his speech more understandable. This is a common problem, I believe, every non-native english speaker faces and can be easily improved upon with the right approach.

y the way, I would like to point out that almost flawless English outta dame's mouth with a tinge of foreign accent sounds sexy as F$%K.
