    Watching recorded lectures online, I just realized that there's a fairly large number of lecturers at my school (~25%?) who speaks with very heavy accents because English isn't their primary language. Is this common in other schools as well?

    Yes. It will be good to start getting used to it. U will see that clinicians and speakers at conferences are very international

    Common to see non-native English speakers in academia? No, not at all....
