We have a lot of students who love this Youtube video. This video really examines language use and as you view it, you really can hear all of the beautiful accents of the world. Many times we forget just how beautiful our languages are. Additionally, Amy Walker is an actress and a one-of-a-kind. It must have taken her years of practice to complete this video. Furthermore, not too many people are able to do what she has done. Some people might be able to learn a few different accents but not 21.
So, enjoy this video and compare the many accents in the video to ways in which you can view your own study of the English language. (Many of our students may hear the many dialects, (or accents), from the many different states that Amy is performing from the USA). - ESL Carnival Academy
Sometimes, America just has to laugh at itself. Here at the Academy, we love to take breaks from ESL teaching to acknowledge great comedians. Also, in keeping with our Carnival theme, we recognize when things are just too plain funny. Additionally, we have a couple of staff members whose birthday is April 1st - or April Fool's Day. Anyway, we'll miss Jon Stewart, although his humor is legendary. Here is Jon's recent ode to big American corporations who really "care" about Americans & the American diet. Love your jokes, Mr. Stewart!
