Accent Game

By | September 2, 2008

In a comment on another post, a friend pointed out a fun game from Language Trainers Group for guessing accents . You listen to someone read a few lines from a poem and then you answer a multiple choice question to identify their country of origin. For a couple of them, you can get bonus points for guessing which city the speaker is from. And if you’re not from that country, it’s very likely to be a wild guess.

I got about half of the 16 right. I would have gotten nearly three quarters of them correct if I had always gone with my first guess. I was too suspicious that the obvious answer wasn’t the right answer.
