Thanks to Lalo for introducing me to the Speech Accent Archive. Lalo likes cheese!

The Speech Accent Archive features both native and non-native English speakers from all around the world reciting this paragraph:

"Please call Stella. Ask her to bring these things with her from the store: Six spoons of fresh snow peas, five thick slabs of blue cheese, and maybe a snack for her brother Bob. We also need a small plastic snake and a big toy frog for the kids. She can scoop these things into three red bags, and we will go meet her Wednesday at the train station."

It is more fun than three red bags of blue cheese! Go to http://accent.gmu.edu
