Accents from around the world: I found this site which provides audio samples of people from around the world reading various materials (in English). You can select the region you want to listen to, and most of the areas have multiple samples. I thought it was interesting, and maybe someone else here will think so too. I guess I just have a thing for accents. Anyway, here is the site if anyone is interested.

By the way, if anyone finds a site similar to this, but with other languages being spoken, I would love to know about it. Thanks.



I love the Nigerian accent! It is so beautiful.

Very good, funny and interesting site :D

I didn't listen to all recordings, actually i listened three of them, but i can tell you, that the Swedish one, was very funny (the accent).

The Swedish accent, after she is done reading the fairytale, is very smiliar to the Norwegian one. Our accent is worse though, since the Norwegian r`s are like the Spanish ones :p
