Since we're from all over the world, I thought it would be interesting and fun to share your accents and all that. Just to give us an idea of what your accent sounds like!
You don't necessarily need a microphone here, if you don't have one or if you aren't comfortable with recording yourself, just tell us about your accent and where you're from
But if you do have a microphone and you are
willing to record, then just head over to http://vocaroo.com
. No need to upload there, you can record on the website itself and you'll get a link if you're satisfied, and just post it here. But if you'd prefer to upload a .wmv yourself somewhere, be my guest.
For uniformity's sake, let's settle on reading this short paragraph:
Please call Stella. Ask her to bring these things with her from the store: Six spoons of fresh snow peas, five thick slabs of blue cheese, and maybe a snack for her brother Bob. We also need a small plastic snake and a big toy frog for the kids. She can scoop these things into three red bags, and we will go meet her Wednesday at the train station.
Well, I don't really know what kind of accent that is, but people tell me it's a Midwestern-ish accent. Although I've never actually been to the States
Since, I guess it's the standard thing I see on television and it's the how people attempt to talk around here, I kind of speak with a fake Midwestern accent mixed in with a Filipino one lol.
