Accent Envy

My parents just hosted some Australian friends for a few days. My dad confided in me that he is suffering from accent envy.

I feel his pain. My husband begs me not to do accents in public. No matter what accent I’m trying to imitate, be it Southern belle or “Mike Myers” Scottish, I inevitably digress into some sort of Indian man’s accent. I clearly don’t have skills like Amy Walker.  Have you seen this video of her performing 21 accents?

And for you Spanish speakers out there, check out 21 acentos:

  1. Love it! I had seen the English, but not the Spanish – I recognized the Dominican accent two words in. It’s like a machine gun – hard to miss : ).
