So, what does English sound like?

Well, we reckon you probably already have a fairly clear idea! As well as being the native language of so many people across the globe, it is also a popular second language. Our audio sample is a combination of two recordings in English, one by a British native speaker and the other by an American native speaker.

British English

This audio sample features the famous first paragraph from Charles Dicken's "A Tale of Two Cities": "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness [...]". Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was an English author and journalist who is best known for works such as "Oliver Twist", "David Copperfield", "Great Expectations" and, of course, "A Tale of Two Cities".

American English

The text read by our American native speaker is a short extract from Henry David Thoreau's "Walden". Thoreau (1817-1862) was a writer, poet and philosopher, and "Walden" is one of his best-known works. He wrote it over the course of a two-year period he spent in a cabin near Walden Pond in the forests of Massachusetts.
