WATCH: What would English sound like to a foreigner?

Okay, so this girl needs to be my new best friend. As an avid language enthusiast, I can appreciate/loathe those who are able to speak more than two languages fluently. This means I love/hate nearly every European and about 1/3 of the rest of the world. One day my three-quarter-ass Spanish and one-quarter-ass French will be perfect.

Not that this woman from Finland is actually speaking any languages, she’s just impersonating their sound, but it still sounds just about right. After going through a few languages, she gets to U.S. English (as opposed to UK English which she also does) and you can hear the difference: we sound so tragically basic.
