Can Your English Vocabulary Reveal Where You’re From?

English is one of the most widespread languages in the world, and so it's not surprising that the English Australians speak will be somewhat different from the English people speak in the United States, for example, though a native American English speaker would probably have no trouble understanding an Australian English speaker in general. The major differences between the 4 English accents we'll try to distinguish between today is in pronunciation, which is tricky to test, but also in vocabulary, spelling and even grammar. In this test, we'll try to determine whether the English you speak is closer to American English, British English, Canadian English or Australian English based on your answers to our questions. Will we be able to guess your English accent based on your word choices? See for yourself!
