Jaz they recorded these from actual people in each location, your a smart one aren't you? I think not.

I thought this was really kool, neat to hear how much different each country's people can sound across such short distances.

Sabre, this is suppost to represent regininal accents. People who represent them should at least have a broad one. Them british ones were just "American" english. They had NO accent.

^^I agree with Jaz. The accents that were chosen for England werent very representative\or thick. I'm at university with people from all over England and hardly anybody actually talks like that. For proper english accents they should have had some examples of roosterney, geordie or scouse. Or manc which is how i speak

My father, who is Swiss-German, listened to the only Swiss-German one on this site and said it's fake. That he sounds British really. By the way, my father lived in England for two years once.

Hm... Interesting.

My accent? I first spoke Swiss-Italian for 7 years and then American English the past 11. What kind of accent could I possibly have? Maybe I should put mine on there.

The accents are not meant to be representations of people speaking in their own language...but speaking in international english. So please fack off if you dont think it sounds like your exact accent...you probably speak in your own area's slang.

This is an invaluable tool for a linguist. Good work.
