How English Sounds to Non-English Speakers

Jul 31, 2012


I like this short video made for Kino Sydney #47 titled 'Skwerl'. A short film in fake English. The actors speak a mix of English words, jumbled in nonsensical conjunctions with English-like words so it sounds like English, but not able to understand what is being said. They do a good just conveying what English sounds to non-English speakers, it also makes me think of when listening to a conversation in a language I know only some of the words, it makes following what is being said difficult but not impossible.
