    Cool How to gain an english accent.

    Someone teach me how.
    How are people so good at learning?
    How are people so bad?
    Is it all about learning certain things?
    Do we have any language learning experts around?

    I mean look Keanu is...well him but still.

    Do you like your accent?
    Do you wish it were something else?
    Can you DO another accent?

    *Takes down notes*

    I want to hear accents, if you have one please share. I love dialects and stuff, I look it up on the daily and wonder where it comes from and try and pronounce stuff and it's crazy awesome. I wish I knew how to at least fake one.

    So let's hear some accents!

    I don't think it's possible to have an accent as American as mine. It's so incredibly regionless.

    The English accent is nice, but my voice is just horrible and undeserving of it's Britishness.

    Jersey accents are obnoxious, you don't want to hear mine.

    I've always had a mild talent for accents, not enough that I could do voicework or anything like that but I can pass for a few different countries/parts of countries if people don't start listening too closely.

    I don't really know what the source of this is though. I guess just listen to the accent you want to emulate a lot, and watch loads of Amy Walker's videos on YT.

    yeah i've watched a few amy walker's videos and she's REALLY talented, a little over dramatic but that's her business right?

    anyways i guess for some people/actors it's just easier to pick up.

    I have a "non-accent" too.

    It used to be Suuuuuper Southern, but my accent was specific to the area of TN that I'm from. It's kind of hard to explain. Like North Eastern Tennessee (Bristol, etc) has their own, and South Eastern has -their- own and Nashville is a big mix of the stereotypical Southern and the "non-accent" like Laddy said. I was made fun of in high school for my southern accent so I worked really hard to get rid of it. I can only slip back into it if I'm imitating my dad or mom. ... Or my Brother. Since they're all a bunch of hillbillies.

    You're from Jersey?

    On behalf of the rest of EoFF I demand to hear a voice clip from you.

    Because I'm one hell of a butler.
