8 various english accents, an Mp3 file
There are many different English accents spoken throughout the world. Some of them are very difficult to understand for an English learner who has been taught the Standard English.
However, not only is being familiar with different accents fun, but it helps better communication and understanding. It will also help to know speakers background culture and thier interests.
I have always been curious to pinpoint a speaker's accent to theire hometown city, but it has not been easy task.
Here is a link to an Mp3 file, with 8 different sentences, spoken by 8 different natives. Pleas someone who is familiar with these accents localize these people towns.
Please be specific and just don't say American, say their town or state.
Please clarify what features in their accents is distinquishable.
Because of the size of Mp3 file I put it somewhere else.
Please Follow the below link bellow, then on the bottom of the page one the file section, click: public>mp3>8 different english accents
Thanks in advance
p.s. here go the sentences:
1. She’s a writer of romantic novels
2. Read about it in news papers.
3. She went to hospital because she had heart problems.
4. We watched TV and then went to bed.
5. I want to thank you for your help.
6. They were jailed for robbing this bank.
7. With a bit of luck, we’ll win this game.
8. Can you hold the umbrella when I get my keys out?
