For those of you that want to to learn the English language you can check out our webpage.

While all languages have their different accents and dialects, English might have the most of them all, because it is such a widespread language.

Here is a woman, Amy Walker, who is putting on 21 different accents. Most of them are English, and they sound so different from one another.

I wonder, which one is her real accent? It is difficult to tell.

Someone said she is from Wisonson in the US. But I think she is British, probably from London. But who knows?

What do you think?
