Spectacular! With the exception of the distinctly European ones, I can't differentiate some of the accents though - they sound the same to me.

Jolly good.
You're a regular 'enry 'iggins, I'd say.

I'm pretty good with the Chinese, Indian and Malay accents though.

I was expecting English accents from England - which only covers the first three (and only 5 even British (you will know the unforgettable Welsh Valleys accent if you've seen Torchwood) - and you could find plenty more than 21 accents that really are of England.

I enjoyed this though. No trouble distinguishing them, but then in my day, i could tell north Mancunian from south Mancunian (= of Manchester) and Yorkshire from Lancashire and eastern from western Scottish, as well as Aussie from Kiwi. Nowadays i just need to tell Wiltshire from Bristol.

Do you know which if any is her natural accent?
