Default Quesiton for native English speakers from the UK





The guy in this video - the English dialect he talks in, what is it, I mean from what region is he coming? Sounds like a mild, gentle form of Scottish to me, but then I listened to early interviews by Amy MacDonald and couldn't understand more than just every third word because of her very coarse Scottish accent back in those days. So no, I do not think this man is coming from a Scottish region!?



Where is this English style spoken?

As far as I'm aware he is a blogger that uses the name Expedition Jack but I'm not sure where he comes from.

One thing is certain though, he is not Scottish and the accent comes from south of the north east region.

Sounds well spoken as in had a good education private school.

No clear regional dialog pinning him down apart from he sounds like a southerner.

Southern English then, okay, thanks.


My Mum send me the link and asked for the language, she was fascinated by the sound of it. It is very clear, clam and extrenely easy to understand for a foreigner who is not too familiar with English, like my Mum. I must agree, he sounds extremely clear and well.

I have watched severla of his videos by now. Some of the best stuff to be found on Youtube, very educating on the matter, and very, very well-done. That he is quite sympathetic and a joy to listen to, is part of the pleaasnt experience


But with respect to subsim's Eichhörnchen you better dont watch his video on how to dress squirrels, and hares.
