What was reportedly unusual about Vladimir Lenin’s accent when he spoke English?

Answer: He spoke it in an Irish accent. When attempting to master the language while residing in London, Lenin found the resident Irishmen there easier to understand than Londoners. As a result, it has been suggested that he spoke in the accent when he himself spoke English.
