The woman in the following video, Amy Walker, is an actress, writer, singer, and dancer. She amazingly imitates (copies) 21 different English accents from around the world.
After watching the video, you may be impressed by her performance and ability to imitate the various (different) English accents. You may also be fascinated by the number of native-English accents that exist in North America and the United Kingdom.
When you communicate in English, focus on the 3 BEs instead of your accent:
- BE comprehensible
- BE confident
- BE natural
