Accent Research

The North West Film Archive is an accumulation of film that features the people, places and activities of the North West of England, a specific geographic location. The accent is shared by the people of the region, is made up by the people of the region as an accumulation of influences, and comes from the physical shapes and spaces your mouth and tongue and other bits make when speaking. It places the speaker geographically whether they are in the region or not.  I am also thinking about light pollution.

http://how-to-learn-any-language.com/forum/QUESTION:
Im [sic] curious as to whether learning english [sic] with the accent from your target language is a good way to learn correct accent for speaking in the actual language?

ANSWER:
You mean, like speaking English (your native tongue) with a put-on French accent might help you speak French better? I shouldn’t think so.
