I'm bilingual English/Norwegian, and also though I currently speak Norwegian even more fluently than English, I have the right to clearly remember learning Norwegian approximately the age of 9. The language has a distinctive singing sound, however I think a lot of Norwegian speakers are conscious of it. We're a tiny country and constantly interact via human being speaking other languages that tell us what we sound like! We likewise have Scandinavian neighbors (Sweden and also Denmark) that speak languperiods that are intelligible to us, however still sound rather different. Norwegian actually sounds more like Dutch than Danish bereason of the method words are pronounced.

It is basically exactly how I feel once I visit my parental fees in France: I deserve to understand also a couple of words right here and tright here, but whatever else sounds like they are reciting obscure, random poeattempt lines.
I don't get it. That's what I hear when I listen to Gerguy. I'm certain it's similar for just about everyone. Heck, that's what its prefer once I hear someone from Louisiana talking (interesting that the tricks had a "Louisiana State University" tag on them in the video). I was talking via a friend last week who is a native Bavarian. He states regularly times he cannot understand also half of what someone from Saxony is saying.

Being born and also increased in Belgium, for me, i understand "the majesties english", the received pronunciation if you will certainly. Comes from years of watching movies in english and also having actually a good english teacher at institution. But the minute the speaker starts talking in a dialect, let's say cockney or various other, i'm lost. (That's once i start hoping for subtitles...
