He 'sings' in a Birmingham accent you'll find

more commonly known as a 'Brummie' accent.

He grew up not too far from where i live

So you speak like him?

They're very funny, a friend of mine at university who has been right to Birmingham a couple of years back thanx the Erasmus Project, has shown me a video of them. I think it was one of their first, I've forgotten the title, but it was a short song, around 2mins 30secs/3min. We laughed a lot, the singer is very likeable! And my friend said to me he sings with the tipical London accent, so it's Birmingham accent instead?

Nice one you have, Step!

Well he was born in London but grew up in an area called Northfield in Birmingham which is a few miles from where i live. It's by the university.

i think that's right anyway

but yeah, i do speak a bit like him

I've seen him yesterday in tracks (German-French-music-and-everything-else-show). He was pretty honest about what happened the last years....

Watch Eastenders and you'll find out what the Essex accent is!

The Birmingham accent isn't very nice

I am not from England - can't watch the Eastenders.
But if I listen to interviews I can't make a difference in between those....
I mean, there are only hmmm 10 km in between (or more?) Doesn't matter. It's not far!

You know many of my friends have said to me that England is the last place to go where to learn english, right because of all the strange accents. They have suggested me places like Scotland and Ireland................................but, aren't they also places with heavy accents influences??

yep. If you speak to somebody from Ireland or Scotland and they speak at a relatively fast pace then you don't have a chance of understanding what they're saying i'm afraid!

Well, I don't know. I've been in Ireland once and had been in contact with "Dubliners". It was quite cool. I understood everything they've said and I got a huge compliment when they said, that my english was pretty good.

Never been to England but when I watch interviews (I don't know - on MTV and other stuff) I understand them. You have to listen closely but all in all it's understandable.

@babyman: i know that he's cool and funny. I opened the thread!
And yeah, well, the Ronnie thread,too!
