      Cool and funny video......How about you find two-three sentences and you repeat how they sound like with only the different American accents? Cause I know how other language speaking people sound like,but I can't distinguish what the difference between American accents is.

    I think the Midwestern accent would be better if it wasn’t as high. That’s mostly the northern parts of the midwest. Lots of the people who live in the southern part of the midwest moved here from the south.

    A Californian accent basically means you annunciate more. A lot of Californians, (including me) will pronounce things like how a Mexican pronounces it without realizing that's not how other English speaking people talk. Also, does anyone else's accent change a bit when their taking to family from another country? Because with my American friends I'll speak perfect English, but with my cousins, (who like me are Mexican) I'll speak English with a slight Mexican accent. I don't do it on purpose, but it just happens.
    Edit: Btw, there's a difference between Mexican accent and a cholo accent. That was a cholo accent.

    I’m not an English native speaker. I was trained to understand English in general. So I can’t tell the differences in American accents. It’s all the same to me. But British, Russian, Italian, French, Spanish, Latino accents etc when people speak English is definitely noticeable.

    I have a general american accent but sometimes I say things weird by accident or on purpose like I say thank you like tank oo, and anything like anyTHing/anyting and everyone like ethreeyon ( eth-re-yon idk if that helps ) and more I forgot about
    most of these are pretty rare for me to say though

  • Matthew Quigley
    Matthew Quigley 20 days ago +1

    I'm from Regina Saskatchewan (canada) and I think that's a slight stereotypical Canadian accent most Canadian American s are from the more southern parts of Canada and have a more American accent except for rare examples such as switching out right at the end of a sentence for "eh" let me just put that in perspective American it's a nice day right southern Canadian it's a nice day "eh"
