Accent Archive

A friend of mine recently showed me this site. It is a whole lot of fun, especially if you have any sort of interest in linguistics. Just click around the globe and hear a fairly banal section of text read with an accent from just about any region of the globe. The phonetic alphabet will accompany every selection. It looks kind of bizarre, but I’m told it can be learned on your own with a small amount of dedication. Anyway, have fun.
