British accent quiz
« on: March 01, 2018, 12:14:24 PM »
Do you have a hidden Hugh Grant or Highland Scot inside?
Take our quiz and we’ll pinpoint what part of the UK you most sound like you’re from – even if you’re not British.

We all know that Brits speak differently depending on where they’re from. But just how differently? And even if you’re a non-British English speaker, might you share some vocabulary or pronunciations with people hailing from a UK region?

Find out with our quiz. Inspired by academic research on accents and dialects, it tests which region of the UK has locals that speak the most like you – even if you’re not British.

Are you a match for Hugh Grant, Cheryl or Ewan McGregor? Your geographic home may be far from the UK, but your linguistic home may be anywhere from Edinburgh to Belfast, London to the Lake District.
