Eight Years Old Cambodian Girl Explained English Grammar Really Well With Great Accent

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

She somehow explains it better than some native speaker English teachers.

Two things jump to mind; What school does she go to? and What do her parents do for a living?

I have found that kids who started learning in the lower grades have good pronunciation. What surprises me though is that they often still miss the plural "s" and put everything in the simple present. Work that one out if you can. :?

Yes British English-quaintly archaic. You will mock Americans who dare to say, "I've gotten tired of this" instead of " I've got..." but you find no contradiction in saying "ill begotten gains." You are a troubled lot

How about Yorkshire English. It will make your ears bleed. Stop the glottal stop.

Oh, that? Couldn’t do it. Don’t matter.
