This is funny because it's such a cross-cultural phenomenon. I'm currently in grad school and some of my closest friends in my program are Pakistani, this being their first time in the States. I thought that they all grew up speaking English or at least a mix of English and Urdu in the household, as their accents were so slight and their grasp of colloquialisms, slang, and American culture so strong. But nope. They just watched a crap ton of Friends. It's really impressive that the show has enough cross-cultural appeal to serve as an English learning vehicle for people from such varied cultural backgrounds.
