This is my story: I was born in a non-English speaking family and lived for my whole life with non-English speaking people but for some reason I've always wanted to learn English. I practiced day and night for my English, took lessons and did all my homework very sincerely. Today, on watching this video, I can proudly say, that I understand not even a single accent of this video.

Understanding English is incredible! Be super proud you have done so. 👏 As for learning the different accents? They can be incredibly difficult to understand and learn the difference between.. And this comes from an Englishwoman. 😂 Everything takes practice and time. Enjoy the learning and you'll get there. But again, accents in England are SO varied and vast and can be so strong, that they really are a challenge even to us natives! Good luck. 😊

As an Aussie, I find it fascinating how UK accents become noticeably more lyrical, with quite distinctive vowel and consonant changes, as you go further north. Our accent certainly has variations, but they're not as pronounced, nor as specific to different locations - yet we're spread out over a much bigger geographical area.

I work at Disneyland in California and pre-Covid I would chat with Aussies every day. It did seem that the accents from the North tended to be stronger. Also people from South Australia seemed to have a British or New Zealand flavour to their Aussie accent. The fact that South Australia had a vast number of Cornish miners probably helps explain it.

Fellow Aussie! Although I've been told my accent is rather American, though sometimes it'll sound British or Irish because I'm a first gen immigrant, this means that english is actually my second language though admittedly it has become my stronger one, that also means I learnt all of my English from preschool and ABC kids. Though where I live Aussie accents in general are not very strong, I do have a friend though who has a really strong one.

That’s because the accents here in the U.K. developed way before people could easily move about a lot, and there was a lot less intermingling. Accents change significantly enough every 5 miles or so that you can usually pin down the town or village they came from. Obviously all accents in the north east England for example (where I live now) have a lot of similarities and you can recognise them as generally north east England, but it’s the slight changes that people who have the accent can pick up easily to tell where exactly you’re from. I wouldn’t be able to tell you the little differences in a scouse accent the same way I could with a north east or scottish accent (I’m originally scottish).

That's actually quite interesting, and it makes a lot more sense, because I mean if you look at the US in comparison, they only have about two or three through the whole country, which again makes sense since English was introduced to the Americas along with more advanced modes of travel

Hi Laura, whilst I am fluent in english, and have been for decades, it is not my native language at all.🤷🏻‍♀️ I found all of the accents fairly easy, excepts Saskias from Cardiff, which I had to listen to twice to properly understand, the „r“ sound was quite complicated for me. It definetly was a fun challenge for me, and I was pleasantly surprised that accents do not pose a big difficulty to me (then again, I know that if I ever get to Cardiff, I‘ll be lost 😅😅😅). And I love Nikki Murrays idea with American accents as well. Not all of us non native speakers are on a beginners level of english, and it is still a fun challenge for us, nonetheless!

@smileせりぬ live in an „english speaking country“ and/or watch TV. Movies and series are the best to learn a language imho. There are so many different accents, that you must first chose what „native speaker accent“ you would like to have.... 😉 British? From where? South-African ? US-American? From where? And then the awesome accents from the Islands..... I settled for my crazy euro-trash accent that is difficult to place lol 😅😅😅... also I habe the horrible habit of copying what I hear around me, so ppl often feel made fun of when I talk to them because I will subconsciously start to copy their accent which is very embarrassing.....oh and when I was watching Peaky Blinders, that was fun, too 😂😂😂. I am a hopeless case but wish you the best of luck w you endeavor! ❤️

I was quite happy and pleased that I totally understood every word of each presenter. I am originally from the very deep American South, studied the history of the English language, Shakespeare, and Chaucer extensively. So I believe those two factors have trained my ear to really understand accents, not only UK ones, but a massive variety of US ones as well. Currently for my own edification, I'm studying the variety of UK accents and dialects, a most rewarding endeavor indeed. Thank you for all your videos for they are really helpful in my learning. But I will say, this particular lesson was quite easy for me so I must be learning it all fabulously! Keep posting these videos! I love them!

I am from Germany and i didn't have a problem to understand these beautiful accents! The hardest onr for me was the one Saskia from South Wales did. I love Scottish and irish accents. Also very beautifully was the West Yorkshire accents from Dan! As i've been a fan of Little Mix (british Girlgroup) for years now, i got used to listening to heavy geordie accents as Jade and Perrie come from South Shields. There is one interview from them were Jade spoke with such a heavy accents they needed subtitels and another bandmember had to "translate" it for the interviewer. I love to listen to celebrities with accents! Like for example Sam Heughan ( ou mentioned the series Outlander, he is the lead actor) and Richard Madden with scottish accents, Niall Horan from Ireland and one accent shown in the video reminded me very much of Rose Leslie, an actress (Game of Thrones) from Aberdeen. It's always fun as was watching this video! Very well made! Thanks a lot!

I'm from The Netherlands and although, most people can understand and speak English really well in our country, it's still the basic British language that we learn. So understanding the difference between each accent is sometimes hard? I can understand most of it, but sometimes I need to listen twice. Being a Mixer, a Potterhead (really, Harry Potter helped me understand English so much better than school ever did) and watching English television without subtitles really helps alot! (Oh and the fact that half of my family lives in Australia, but I don't talk to them that often)

I’ve grown up in a non-English speaking country with only non-English speaking family members. I started learning English in third grade in school, though I only started to study more seriously in 5th or 6th grade. That would make a total amount of 8 years learning English up to now (or 5 to 6 years serious learning). I’m quite impressed that even though my English isn’t perfect and I’ve never been to an English speaking country before, I understood most of the things being said in those different accents. And my personal favorite is the Scottish accent but preferably a less distinct one ^^ - Greetings from Germany 🇩🇪🍺

I'm quite happy to say that I manage to have them all right ! I really find the Black country accent so difficult to understand and my first trip to England was over there and I had so much trouble understanding a simple thing. I'm french and I really wish that at school they teach us like english but with the different accent . All my learnings comes from the films, series, plays , videos I watched . Also I watched a lot of American show but over the last year I really moved to the British show

I'm not even finished with the video yet, but I subscribed immediately. I think your lessons will improve my fluency level since it's a whole new concept for me. I tend to stick in American accent only, so it is sometimes difficult to comprehend other English accents. I also enjoyed your enthusiasm and the way you teach.

Just for information. I'm from Durham. The accents across Durham, Tyne and Wear and most of Northumberland are basically variations of the same North East accent. We can hear regional differences but outsiders probably would have to have them pointed out. There is a tradition of calling the Newcastle accent 'Geordie', the Sunderland accent 'mackem and Durham 'pitmatic'. The truth is that originally the term "Geordie" is thought to have been used to refer to the miners of Durham and Northumberland so the appropriation of the term by Newcastle is dubious to say the least. People outside the area tend to refer to the north east accent as "Geordie". Apart from local vocabulary there are three distinctive pronunciations that mark Geordie The -ay sound of day, say, away etc is pronounced as a long -é similar to Swedish -e in the word leka. Unlike elsewhere this in not a diphthong. The -o sound of go, slow, no, flow is like the Swedish -å. Again this is not a diphthong. Unique to Geordie is the 'glottal reinforcement' of p, t, k. This means that these sounds between vowels are pronounced with a simultaneous glottal stop. Unlike other accents these glottal stops do not replace the consonant. They are pronounced with the consonant to give the very distinctive way Geordies pronounce 'happy', 'matter' and 'package'. You can hear it clearly when Lauren say 'mackem' 13:18.

this is literally what our listening tasks in class were like but we also had people talking in the background and bad connection. I got everything right except cardiff. I find listening tasks quite difficult since I've been watching all shows and movies with subtitles but then again sometimes I have to ask people multiple times to repeat a sentence when I'm on the phone with someone from my home town. also I have a really hard time understanding certain german accents as well. swiss german for example, whenever I go to switzerland I mainly speak english to everyone because I don't understand a thing

Native Dutch over here, but have been in contact with many people from all around the UK, so could understand almost everything, only one I had a little trouble with was the South Wales one. I lived in the UK for a few months, up North, that really helped me understand the accent there. I have a soft spot for Scottish though, every time I hear it I want to immediately travel there. Great video, thanks.

The passage Pete read, I knew it sounded familiar but I couldn’t place it, so I googled it and realised it’s from On The Road which was a book I had read ages ago but I’ve never heard anyone speak about it or use in any of the literary classes I’ve been in. Thank you for including that passage, the book meant so much to me and I loved the journey they took 🤩

For all of you watching and worrying you don’t understand, well I had English at school for more than 10 years and when I moved to Sunderland a few years ago I didn’t understand a word 👀 it took me 3 years to understand it enough to communicate 😂 and study at Uni with students speaking geordie. Don’t worry we all have been there 🤣

When your mum’s from Yorkshire, your dad’s from Birmingham, and your Australian….I’ve got a really weird hybrid accent, like I’ll have (somewhat) posh sounding English accent with a bit of Australian slipped in one second, and then all of a sudden I’m full on English street talk, then I’ll just *switch* to very mild English with a more prominent Australian accent….like choose one😩 I don’t need all three😩✋

Italian native speaker here and I love how the British English sounds, the only issue is that I couldn't understand much. I'm so used to hear American English (KZbin videos, TV shows, movies, videogames etc..), in fact I understand it a lot, but I struggle when I hear British one.

my dad whose ppl came to canada from yorkshire often used to do different accents and slang, so i learned at lot. my father watched tons of british accents and i understood all of them as a child. It's funny cuz i'm adopted at birth but when I went to learn about my dna, i got almost 100% Celt like mainly Ireland (south) and the Hebrides of Scotland, Stornoway et. So I am currently listening to how those Irish and Scottish accents all sound. I got a very small amount of english dna and it said mainly West Yorkshire (i was like, yay as it was near my dad's ppl).

Not saying all the letters properly, especially changing the “th” sound to an “f” was like fingernails on a blackboard for me!

I‘m from Germany, 8th grade and I have an A-B at my English class. In my last vocabulary test I had an A. So I did this for fun. I think I speak and understand English pretty well and I guess the biggest reasons for that I do is that I only listen to English music for example Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Katy Perry,BTS,Miley Cyrus or Britney Spears or only watch English youtubers like Vixella, SSSnipetwolf, LaurenZside and MoriahElizabeth.(I watch more then them) I also watch English movies like Harry Potter and I watched it more often in English than in German. I also like American series like Victorious iCarly or Sam&Cat. So I don’t learn British English in school,no I also learn American English by myself. I‘m sorry if I did any grammar mistakes. I hope you understand what I was writing.
