This site had me laughing unexpectedly

Interesting site for those interested in this sort of thing. It's English spoken in almost every accent: http://classweb.gmu.edu/accent/

How strange we all sound saying the same thing! My favourite is the Portuguese girl from Bahia, Brazil

Makes you think because I know my English probably sounds like crap to other people from around the world

French Speaker from Ghent, Belgium

i doubt there are many native french speakers in ghent, besides one or two old people maybe

great site otherwise

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

The Afrikaans speaker from Pretoria sounds like he has no accent.
The Portugese speaker sounded like she couldnt read the words properly.
