Our accent test can determine where you might be from within the United States. You can learn a lot about people and where they're from just by listening to the way they pronounce words. You could probably go to sleep and then wake up in a random place in the country and figure out where you are by the way people talk. In some areas, the dialect is so thick, it has become a part of the culture. So people living in Minnesota use one word to say soda while someone in the deep South uses another word. From the west coast to the Northeast, do you know what your American accent is?
