Cheryl Cole accent - do you understand ???

Poor Cheryl Cole was kicked out of X Factor USA. Do you understand her accent.
I'm not a Geordie so I struggle, so maybe the America did have a point.

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

I struggle with her accent - you do not have to not be a geordie to do so. Apparently, she declined the offer of elocution lessons ... however, I am sure she will survive.

Why would anyone need to listen to it?

She'd understand I'd gone to work by my lack of presence. What else is there?

I'd at least give her 10 francs to buy herself something nice.

Do you understand her accent.
No problem here, and I am not a native speaker.

I think her northern accent is lovely!

(and she is so pretty, and feminine which probably helps too...)

Prefer the northern dialects much more to those southern yodeling.

... and pretty nifty with a left hook too, I believe ...

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

I can understand her fine, I just happen to find her a vacuous, talentless bimbo.

Haha. Was just going to write that...

If any of you really think that's a strong Geordie accent, you've never been exposed to the real thing.

That said, I've been the US and people have had difficulty understanding me... and, you'll have to trust me on this, I've not got much of an accent beyond boarding school best.

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

Annoys me because any american with any accent is understood in the UK or expected to be understood - it's nothing to do with her accent its the fact she's not famous enough and they have to have mega stars - just using the accent as an excuse
