You've got a Scottish accent!

This is one of the great British accents - and actually more of a group of accents. There's a big difference in the Shetland and Glaswegian accents you see, and even really small places will have their own unique twangs! Often a southern English "o" sound will turn into an "ae", like "Ah cannae dae that!". A very useful phrase if you're ever in Scotland! Not the accent you were after?

You speak posho English!

You speak the Queen's English - the kind of snooty English accent that sounds like you have a clothes peg stuck on your nose. This is the sort of English that's spoken in fancy schools and village fetes all round the South of England. Guffaw guffaw! Oh yes please matron, I'd simply love some more cold custard! Not the accent you wanted? We don't blame you! Take this quiz again and see what you get next time!

You've got a Brummie accent!

This lovely-sounding soft accent is from Birmingham, or as Brummies pronounce it, BUUUUUURminGUM. It can sound dry and matter of fact, and other English people sometimes laugh at it. But we think it's one of the best! Good choice! Not the accent you were after? Take this quiz again and see what you get next time!

You've got a Geordie accent!

This accent comes from Newcastle in the North East of England. It's a very distinctive accent, often with a kind of bouncy tone that's fun to listen to. Some words like "water" are pronounce "wata!" or "better" becomes "betta!". Woyoy man! An excellent accent - great choice! Not the accent you wanted? Too bad - you're stuck with it! Not really.
