English accents

Ever wonder about the different types of accents you would hear from English speakers all over the world? Here is a video that shows a woman introducing herself by her name, age, and location with different accents. It is interesting how different the accents can be, even for states within the United States!

21 Accents by Amy Walker

In general, American people in:
West Coast (Los Angeles, CA; Seattle) tend to speak very quickly and in a higher pitch, particularly for women.  
East Coast (Brooklyn, NY; Boston, MA, New Jersey) tend to speak very quickly and sound tough with a lower pitch. 
Southern and Western regions (South Carolina, Texas, Georgia) tend to speak very slowly and drag their words. 

What differences have you noticed in the accents of your native language?
