An intermediate-level learner with an unhealthy fascination with kanji.

Strong dislike for all "One true way to learn Japanese" pronouncements.

comment Should I speak in the local dialect and/or accent of an area?
This question is fundamentally about "should I", rather than "how does the language work". It might be a good question for travel or expats, but is offtopic for this site. Alternatively, it could be closed as "primarily opinion-based", given that the request is for people to guess the reactions from (non-specified) native speakers to a foreigner (of non-specific skill) emulating a local accent, and then give advice (of non-specified purpose) for how to proceed.

comment How should I select what first-person pronoun to use?
There are some issues here with these suggestions. うち can be used where an English-speaker might use a personal pronoun, but the meaning is significantly broader. It's not actually a personal pronoun per-se. It is certainly not "informal", and it is also not entirely "gender-free" (although that depends on context). Do you perhaps mean 'あたい'. おら sounds decidedly masculine and somewhat provincial.
