Description of what is on the sound file:
Native speaker of English, I explain myself in the sound bite.
Transcript of sound file:
Hi, this is Belinda speaking from Sydney, Australia. I grew up in a suburban part of Sydney where the accent is pretty different to how I speak now. The accent I have now is what you would call a North Shore accent, as I live just North of Sydney city.
Sometimes the differences in accents in Australia amazes me. I can understand why English learners have trouble understanding people when they are travelling in the regional parts of Australia.
All I can say is- stick to your guns, if you don't understand, just smile.
