Recently, while I was going through the news on youtube I found this interesting channel called Korean Billy. This young boy from South Korea explains and speaks various British dialects in a unique and funny way.
Korean Billy about himself (on Facebook):
I am a Korean guy who is living in Seoul, South Korea.
I love British culture and British English, and as I am quite interested in various kinds of dialect, I usually make videos about British dialects.
I lived in Preston, Lancashire for about 6 months as an exchange student, so I could meet a lot of northerners while living there, and learn much about British dialects.
When I first heard the Scouse dialect, I found it really interesting because I didn’t know anything about British dialects.
After I came back from the UK and started to make Youtube videos, the scouse dialect just popped up in my mind while thinking of new topics to cover.
After I first made my video about Liverpool dialect words, I’ve made various videos about other dialect words, and I will keep making more videos about British dialects.
So many dialects to explore!
On Youtube he has attracted over 38,000 subscribers, and his videos have more than 2.8 million views.
His first video that I saw was “Glasgow Dialect Words” and frankly I thought that he’s Glaswegian. I’ve been there twice in the last two years and I had difficulty to understand their dialect, but he pronounced it like a pro!
Billy said he lived in Preston, Lancashire for about 6 months as an exchange student and that he is very interested in the British culture. Notably, he’s a very devoted to his job and all his videos are the result of careful research and learning.
I must admit that I was inspired by his positive energy and that I was encouraged to try to correct my poor English.
Thank you Billy! 🙂
