Year 4: 21 accents

Like many other languages, spoken English has wide variation in its pronunciation. This variation is especially noticeable in English, because the language is spoken over such a wide territory: Australia, Canada, the Commonwealth Caribbean, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States, in addition to being spoken as a first or second language by people in countries on every continent. Watch the video below. Can you identify the 21 different accents?
