Maria Oliveira disse...

I also watched the video about the different accents! I laughed alot about the Southern English from East London and also the Northern English from Liverpool mainly because i could barely understand what he said!

Teresa Mendonça disse...

I watched the video of the top 5 most spoken languages, I was really suprise I didn't kwon the Portuguese was considered the 5th most spoken language

Carolina Gomes disse...

I have to say that the different accents one did catch my eye too. He was really good, I was very impressed! My favourite, though was the video about the french man learning english, so funny!

Sofia Gomez disse...

The 24 accents video is the best! The Russian accent is the funniest!

Mónica Jorge disse...

I have to admit that the video about the different accents was the funniest one in my opinion. It's so strange to realise that it's almost impossible to understand some of the accents, sometimes it doesn't even sounds like English at all! My favourite accent was the "Indian English" because I remembered the character "Apu" from "The Simpsons", quite funny!

Alexandre Correia disse...

I especially liked the 24 accents video, some of them are hard to understand.

Margarida Jesus disse...

The video I found most funny was undoubtedly the one about the French man learning English pronunciation. This video also shows how hard it can be to learn a foreign language.

Hello, hello teacher!
I saw all the 6 Youtube videos and they're pretty interesting.
I have to agree with Mónica! The video about the 24 different accents is really amazing.
It's unbelievable and impressive the fact of that guy talking a lot of different accents! I'm amazed.
I loved the southern english (British English - Formal RP), the Russian accent, and finally the US American shouthern/redneck.

The 4th video is also interesting because it shows that we all need a language to communicate with each other, in this case, in terms of aviation!

Thanks!

The vídeo about the Future of English caught my particularly attention. The power of the English language and its spread woldwide made it a established and basic skill among the society. However, the money, success and influence of China are turning Madarin into a leading language for international relationships. Concepts such as education and technologies are being reconstructed. Eventually, Mandarin will overtake English as a língua franca.

Maria Veiga França disse...

I must say the video of the lad speaking in 24 different accents is by far the most amusing! Particularly enjoyed the Posh British and Irish ones. It's amazing how he is able to speak in so spot on in all those accents!

Laura Abreu disse...

It's amazing how we can have so many different accents from the same language, and the boy in the video is seriously the funniest ever trying to copy all the accents.

The video I found most interesting was the one about the top 5 most spoken languages. It's really good to know that there are so many people that speak my native language and by that, help to perpetuate the language in the history of multiculturalism.

The video "Global language" clearly shows us how important English is and how urgent is to learn it because being able to speak English brings us more opportunities in the world of work.
