32 Accents in 8 Minutes

Normally when we post videos, we keep them relatively short. Today’s video, though, clocks in at close to 8 minutes but it’s well worth it. This unnamed poster has created a video of himself doing 32 different types of English accent. The range from North American accents, to Irish accents, to Scottish accents, to English accents as well as a variety of international accents (Sorry, no Tico English accent here but you can hear that in class every week! 😉

Some of the accents are honestly better than others, but it’s pretty entertaining and not a bad listening exercise for all of you who want practice trying to understand English accents. The actor here also uses slang/idioms that tend to be specific to the group of people he is imitating so the truly ambitious of you could use this to use new idioms as well!
