Hi everyone. I'm new here, and I'm really just trying to introduce myself to everyone. I wound up here searching for ways to maybe pick up another accent, rather than the one I have. I'm from from central-Kentucky, and carry the very thick accent and dialect of this area (partly southern, partly mountainous, partly all our own). You migh've already noticed with some of my grammar.

Like I said, I'm interested in learning to imitate other English accents. From what I've read, it sounds like it's going to be hard, but I'm up for the challenge! I'm open to any tips, comments, or questions.

Thanks a lot!
Hi Sarah! Welcome to English Forums. I hope you have a good time here!
Hello Sarah! Kentucky is such a beautiful place - a very close friend of mine has cousins who live there. He sent me some pictures of the beautiful horse farms - beautifully scenic landscapes like the ones you see in storybooks! By the way, do you own a horse?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hi Benita! I believe Kentucky is a beautiful place as well, if I do say so myself.Emotion: smile I really don't live in horse-farm country, I live more up in the foothills of the knobs, still very beautiful, more so than the bluegrass region, I think. Nope, I don't own a horse. My family used to raise them when I was younger, and my dad and I would ride all the time. But when we bought into the sheep business (6 years ago), we sold out of horses. Personally, I think sheep are more fun and are more low-maintanence, but dad's thinking of getting another horse just to ride around the farm.

Best Wishes,
I think the best way to learn another language is to immerse yourself in it. I think the same is true with learning another dialect. For instance: I have a friend who is from Kentucky. He moved out here to California and now his accent is gone! My sister moved to Lousiana and a friend moved to Georgia. Now they both speak with southern accent. I'm not suggesting that you move, but it does help.
