The Language Trainers Accent Game

It hasn’t even officially been launched (just try to find a link on our homepage), but already the Accent Game has proved a huge success among those with a finger on the virtual pulse.

The makers of the game asked native and non-native speakers of English to read two lines of a poem, and now it’s up to you, the player, to determine where the speaker is from.  If the excerpt was read by a native speaker, you also get the chance to earn bonus points by picking the city they come from.

Do you have a lot of friends from all over the world?  Do you think you have what it takes to pinpoint an accent’s origin?  The concept is deceptively simple, but the challenge itself can be a lot more difficult than you’d think.  I got just over half of the countries the first time I played.

Give it a try, and then challenge your friends to do better!

If you enjoyed playing the game, think you have an interesting accent, and have a desire to participate in the next one (and potentially be world-famous!), upload a short video or audio file here, and we will let you know if you make the cut!
