Re: Cheryl Cole accent - do you understand ???

I love this quote from a focus group in America:


''Why does she not sound like Kate Middleton?''


Made me laugh

I love Cheryl cole. She is beautiful and a lovely artist. I think the accent doesn't matter. She's cool...

Re: Cheryl Cole accent - do you understand ???

Basically I can understand any English accent or dialect around the world pretty easily apart from really heavy Glaswegian. Whenever I watch something on TV with "trainspotting-ese" it takes me 10 minutes of blank staring before my brain can understand it.

A long time ago I sat with a Glaswegian in a pub and had to pretend I had an ear infection and couldn't hear - with his accent and the pub noise he could have been speaking a foreign language - I couldn't make out a single word. I was pretty embarrassed at the time.

I'm the same with a strong Irish accent.

I actually quite like her accent.
