Great video as well as great teacher. I am trying to improve but still struggling and thinking about different languages whose are the founder of these. It seem to very interested. There are many languages spoke in the world and who to shape these speaking stuff like grammar vocabulary and many more.

This is a topic that I always am trying to learn, how to understand the different types of accent in English, and now I have realized that it’s possible to speak in a regional neutral middle-class accent to transmit our ideas and thoughts. The evolution of the language sounds maybe only a form of expression. Thanks a lot, teacher Benjamin, it has been a very interesting and entertaining video class about the accents.
