I have been having a debate with my friend who thinks that people from Reading, UK, have an accent but having looked online I can't seem to find anything personally. Can anyone help with phonetic proof please?
Gushing and over the top is embarrassing. Appreciative is nice. There is an American family who make a point of staying in my town regularly and video blog about it. Sometimes it is nice to have people make you look through new eyes at where you live.
