Language videos

It would also be great to have videos in different varieties, accents and dialects. If you know of any good ones, or feel like making one, do let me know.

    The accents from the west of England are pretty extreme. You’d have to search hard to find those in everyday life.. I have the impression they are “party pieces”: ” here’s me speaking in the local accent.”
