Hello and welcome to The Accent Bank by Sarah Valentine. My name is Jacob and I was born in Grimsby and I am proud to come from Lincolnshire, and this is my natural accent.

(Next follows a few words or phrases that are unique to this area or region, followed by the script below.)

Now I am going to read the following sentences, starting with a tongue- twister.

• She sells seashells on the seashore
• The sun is so hot today, I love summer. I like to go walking on the beach but I also love it when it rains and I’m inside and I can hear it on the roof.
• Would you like a glass of water?

Now I’m going to count from 1 to 20

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen,

Be kind to each other.
