“We don’t use the media, or religious figures, or peace Corp.” Lies...... Misrepresentation at best, Maybe no actual agents, but assets galore.

"...half the fun for me is watching closely to see what they get wrong." My siblings & I used to sit thru the holiday movies for the same reason - script is right there in the Bible, but soooo many mistakes because of working off tradition instead of fact. Was always fun to find another detail gone wrong.

Specializing in languages also includes learning the local dialect of your chosen area. It's always the details that are important.

Fantastic want to blend into another culture like you are native. That means learning everything re: culture, laws, history and especially the language! Also one thing that gives Americans away is their loud voices, their clothing and their shoes. Disrespect for cultural norms is a problem too.

"Most of our men and probably a majority of our women wouldn't be caught dead in a black cat suit" - 2 things: 1) I'm a man and I would rock that cat suit. 2) The pun on being a spy and getting caught dead.

Invertin Il y a 18 heures
...Huh. Not that I don't believe her, cuz I do, but I find it super weird that they had no luck changing agent's voices, I know a few people who trained their voices to sound different for personal reasons, and you can even go back in their youtube history and hear the gradual shifting. It might have been a time pressure thing, I don't actually know how long those people did that for, or maybe techniques in voice training have changed since she was working? I have no idea.

i really enjoy this woman, shes very professional but she can still find the funny side in all the costumes that arnt very good and she informs us about h ow to do disguises to an extent that may help in a situation that someone might find themself in like being stalked at a bar or harassed something .like that.
