  1. Aussie right here. She does fully pronounce Australia though whereas alot of us pronounce it AStraya lol or Straya. We definitely drop alot of R's from words and use ds in place of tts like she said Boddle not bottle lol. Yes we are pretty lazy lol

  2. I think the american English is easier to understand than the British, but actually I love the British pronunciation.

    🇨🇴🇨🇴

  3. All right… Firstly British accent, then American accent and now Australian accent… Now I'm confused in my accent….

  4. I like you, and you are my lovely English teacher Emma. <3
    I'm a new Subscriber for you, Who's speak Arabic as primary language.

  5. If you are black and in the states you say Ahnt and Ahn-tee for Aunt and Auntie. Especially when speaking to one. (See Kilmonger's greeting to Black Panther's mother)

  6. You left off two of my favorites.

    Vitamin, which in Australian is pronounced Vit-A-men. However in American it is pronounced VITE-amen.

    Also,

    the word Vegemite. In Australian it is pronounced Veh-juh-MITE. Here in the states it is pronounced OH-em-GEE-the-hiss-TAH-sss-LIE-ckk-AZZ.

  7. Now I'm completely confused🤧🤧🤧😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭OHHHH NOOOOO I learnt english my whole life for nothing..

  8. You pet an animal in a petting zoo!… Pat, on the other hand, is a name which is typically a shortcut for Patrick or Patricia!

  9. The presenter woman is cringingly awful. I cannot stand listening or watching her dreadful fake laughs and continual attempts at superiority. I don't know exactly what it is that triggers me, but she's just condescendingly yuk.

  10. Well if this a challenge who sounds better ..we know the whole world wants to be American.. So we know who won!!

  11. americans didnt chabnge the spelling. The guy who discoverfed it was named aluminum. We changed it for some reason and it became the scientifically acceptable term and americans didnt. Sometimes the yanks are right what can i say

  12. One of my favorites for UK/Aussie is the difference in how we say "Poor". I made some Scottish people crack up at my pronunciation of that word as an American lol.

  13. im malaysian and now im confused.. i sometime use both ways(accents)(without even realizing cause im too confused lol) to pronounce those words

  14. Bush chook is an emu! I've never heard it used for beer, but if it was it can only refer to one brand of beer anyway (Emu Export) obviously.
    It's also kind of a little annoying to see these vids when we have different words and pronunciations across the country.

  15. What about Arabic Iraqi native speaker , I understand both and can vowel both too ☺️, depends on consideration

  16. Thanks Allan and Emma
    that's seem interesting to me that in my mother language I mean Persian we exactly pronounce aluminium like Australian accent

  17. I'm an American from the Deep South and we routinely say "Aunt" in the Australian/British fashion. And we say niche as "nishe". But "nitch" is its own word. Niche is refers to a sub-category or similar. But "nitch" describes you or someone else's personal preference as in "I found my nitch when I discovered caffeinated tequila." As opposed to "Caffeinated tequila is a niche product". Furthermore I'm appalled that spellcheck doesn't acknowledge the validity of "nitch" but is fine with "y'all".

  18. A lot of these words Americans say differently not all Americans say things the way he is saying. I don’t say niche the way he did. And aunt I don’t say ANT. Even though I’m american my parents are Indian so I suppose I was exposed to British English growing up because of that.

  19. in america the 'phones are in 'c ells', not like here with complete coverage, america charges by the cell….more expensive than us in australia

  20. English is my second language and I grew up listening to people who speak English from all places and now my accent is a mixture of everything. In the words this video mentioned, I pronounce half of them American and half of them Australian and I have lost track of which is which.

  21. I’ve always studied the American English. I’ve been living in Australia for 2’months and now my English is a messy mix of American and aussie 😬

  22. People always asked me what kind of accent I have and I never really figured out. I was born in Chile and raised in Canada, I don’t have a Canadian accent it’s more Australian/British accent I got. The girl is saying how I say words. Interesting… I must be part Australian or something somehow or even British 😂

  23. Why can't we have just the same accent around the world? Don't drop the letters, enunciate all letters for f sake. 😸

  24. Fyi – informative, but in U.S. there are 6 to 10 different distinct accents due to geography. Unfortunately there is not an "American Accent". However due to Hollywood films/show distributed heavily worldwide, the perception is an American annunciation and pronunciation is associated with a California accent. Even within the U.S., many Americans consider Californians to have no accent. Of course from a linguistic perspective that is completely not true.

  25. you sound so kind hearted …
    i dunno what makes me love you but definitely deserve our love…
    you're great but still down to the earth …
    your facial expression (especially your sweet smile )
    is worth our time cuz you teach with patience ..
    i don't have enough words to say how you are…even in my native language cuz my vocab is pretty dang poor but still wanna say no matter what ,you'll always remain one of those women who actually inspires her with her smile and simplicity ..
    my bad , i can't even meet you ..may be in future .. im 13 but can make sure to meet my inspiration ( a sweet teacher emma😊)…
    in future..
    You're amazing .. god may bless you …

  26. Very interesting! I'm Canadian and I pronounce some words like Emma and some others like Allan. For Instance, ''Garage'' like Emma and ''Burger'' like Allan. The ''T'' , ''TH'' and the ''R'' also change everything. ''Aunt'' like Emma it's sure!

  27. Australia accent much easy for foreign to learning.. Almost similar British.. Aí Americans your English is not beautiful at all… Sorry!

  28. We Americans butcher pronunciations of words all over the place. It’s obvious based on the spelling but we say it totally wrong 🤦🏻‍♀️

  29. My sister came back from Australia for a week she's bin there for 9 years and we had a great time sad she went back….Now whats puzzling me is that she was continuously getting abuses from the Australians and by the Muslims saying to here she is taking there jobs (She is a cleaner) Not one person has been reprimanded for calling British people POMIE bastards now tell me were is the equality there what a bunch of criminal bastards
