It's not guessing if you're good

I came across this fun little game recently. It's simple. Just figure out from the accents where the speakers are from when they read lines from an English poem (Rudyard Kipling's If).

After the lines are read you'll get to pick from a list. I missed one country and a few of the cities. But true to the name of the game some of these were guesses. I don't know that I'd do so well with a new batch of speakers.

Which clues were you able to use to identify nationality? Any misleading pronunciations?

  1. I did very badly. So obviously all the things I used to guess by are bad clues.


Thanks for reaching out.
