How well do you know British and Irish accents?

September 13, 2016

Can you tell the difference between a Somerset accent and a Cornish accent? What about Cockney or Estuary English? Test your knowledge in the fun quiz below which has been put together by travel firm Expedia. The quiz challenges you to identify ten accents spoken in different parts of the UK and Ireland after listening to recordings of speakers from those areas.

And remember that on Forvo you can hear pronunciations in accents of different languages from all over the world. Every user's recordings are geo-located in order for you to identify their accent. Simply check out the accent map below each pronunciation on Forvo in order to see where that speaker's accent is from.
