Accent Challenge words

In the first step of this version of the accent challenge, you tell the audience your name and username.

Followed by where you’re from. Then, you pronounce a series of twenty-eight words.

After which, you will answer some questions about what words you use for things like gym shoes, grandparents and other fun kinds of stuff in your culture.

Then, you select a book and read a passage from the book.

Now, you tell the audience if you think you have an accent and if you’d rather be a wizard or vampire.

Lastly, end the challenge with any three words you want.
