I have attended courses in English over many years, and as most of my English teachers have an Algerian accent, I have always wondered about the question of accents.

I can distinguish an American accent because of the movies I've seen, but I can't distinguish between British, Australian and South African accents as they sound the same to my ear.

Even on social media I can only get in touch with non-English speakers that have foreign accents.

Q: How can I identify whether my interlocutor has an Australian, English or South African accent?
