Meet the Amy Walkers

She even has the Kiwi accent well.  It's not easy, apparently.

  3. That's quite an achievement, being able to switch between accents like that... I always had a certain tendency to pick up accents myself (to some degree) if in the company of people who speak one, but that's not the same as being able to shift accent at will and get it right...

  7. Amazing.. she does a good Aussie accent! I'm a natural mimic..it's very embarrassing when I catch myself inadvertently copying someone with a thick accent..
    Hope you had a blessed Easter :)

    1. Thanks for your wishes Jules. Yes, her Aussie is good! I am a little embarrassed that she does the Kiwi unsureness so well too :-D

  8. She must be from Australia, or lived there long, because she is making fun out of the people in Wellington, not remembering their age. She has to improve on her southern drawl however, for the South Carolina and Texas accent. Fun to hear all those accents. Missed the Dutch accent though.

  10. Oh yes Ben, she didn't do a Dutch accent! Most remiss of her! Perhaps you could post on youtube to show us what it sounds like :-)
    PS thank you for the lovely birds, and letting me know about Alden. I hope your snows are melting and that spring is bursting out!
