We have 9 year old son and we are staying in Dallas,TX but planning to move back to India. If he comes back at the age of 18, would he be able to pick up his american accent.

we have a 9 year old son and we are currently in Texas. Our son talks to us in native language and in English (but with indian accent) but when we talks to his friends he talks to them in American accent. When he talks to us in English, I asked him many times to talk in american accent but he never did it. I wonder what makes him do that . Also I am planning to move back to India. My question is if he comes back at the age of 18, would he be able to pick up his american accent. please advice.Thanks.Lucky
