I was just wondering what languages people spoke and what accent you have? That way. if anyone is looking for something different then a quick scout through here can let people know what's around.

My first language is English, my accent is northern. However, I can do upper-class British. I can read German and French and get the gist of it and can pronounce German if it is written.
The only other language I'm fluent in is sign-language...not much use for voice work!

Good idea, Silvery. I am fluent in US English. Can do a country accent. O course I do old voices really good. Can be very gnarly.

Cara says he has a French accent with Scotish overtones. I am dying to hear it.

Silvery, I have seen requests for British accents.

I am french canadian (and can do a pretty good french canadian trying to talk in english). I'm not bad in english, but I have a french accent when I speak. I also have a college degree in theater (interpretation) as well as amateur experience. I'm not an actor, but I'm decent. Smile

Let me start by saying that I'm no actor but that I do like making funny voices and occasionally phone call pranks (does that count?) I'm French (mainstream French with at times something close to a Swiss accent) and I have a British accent with a rather strong Scottish influence (especially when I had a few pints). Since I haven't been to Scotland in a long time my accent is not as pure as it used to be. I've spent years working on losing my French accent in English though.

I've studied German but my German is a bit rusty. My mother once told me I sound like a Brit when I speak German... I don't think she meant it as a compliment. I've lived abroad so I had to learn words and expressions in foreign languages like Arabic (with a really thick French accent) and like most people I've picked up some words in other languages which I didn't study like Spanish (very poor), Italian (I've been told I sound really French which is a nice way to say that I'm bad at it) -I tend to mix them together. I'd like to learn Japanese but I've given up on Greek, Dutch or Hebrew and Spanish. I know how to say "cheers" in a few other languages including Hungarian and Gaelic (I've tried learning some Scottish Gaelic in the past) but nothing more.

I have some friends who can speak five languages... I wish I was that good with languages.

I am moving this thread to the "Get Help" forum. Center Stage is for actual productions.

For those of you that are a bit shy about showing off your voices please note that jez is a kind and gentle critiquer. I try to follow her example. Smile So please don't be shy. You are also not only welcome to critique us but encouraged to do so. The best way to learn voice acting is to do it.

Both jez and I have had excellent help and love to pass on what we know as well as learn from others.

I look forward to hearing from you all. Very Happy

Note: It seems there is no such word as critiquer. What would the "French be for one who critiques? Maybe we should adopt that.

Critique in French. But I think that we could find a nicer word for a "critic" as it doesn't sound very friendly.

Umm...I think that may be 'Critique' Laughing I'm probably wrong though. I've always wanted to learn French but I suck at learning the pronunciation and the spelling

FYI Cara, your sig is wrong. The London Underground is everything a shitty political movement would be lol!

Perfect timing! French spelling is a real pain to be honest but I love it. The thing you have to bear in mind is that you can be educated and well read and still make spelling mistakes on occasions... In comparison English is really easy to spell (and that may explain why I may sound like some spelling freak at times).

Nothing beats living in a country if you want to improve the way you speak a language Silvery. I'm sure your French isn't that bad and that you can get by when you travel to this side of the Channel. Wink

We could just use critique as both a verb and a noun. That happens a lot in English. What do you want from a language from a place as mixed up and confused as the British Isles?

What is a poor American doing amongst you people? HELP.

Last time I was in France I said 'Es tuit mir leid aber ich keine....shit, wrong language' I can count and ask what the smell is and I remember (thanks to a mental French teacher) how to say 'under'. That's it. I can get the gist of something when I read it but I'd love to be able to speak it. I used to be able to 'listen and learn' a language but my hearing problems have put the kybosh on that!

I don't think the word "critique" is very friendly but I'll let you be the judge of that.

I find that watching programs and DVDs in a language is a great way to get used to that language. French is probably not that hard to understand when it is written. The same goes for other languages. My father never studied English but he was fluent in French and German and he managed to understand English rather well.

Hum... I guess you've got a point. The Underground is moving as well.

What was this girl band singing about the "sound of the underground"? Pussycat something?

EDIT-> Girls Aloud! I miss Top of the pops... This was pretty bad. Laughing

I don't keep up with pop music to be honest. I'm not a huge fan of America (Sorry Nakia) but they have the most amazing rock culture that makes European pop look like something the cat threw up

Cara, would you teach me some basic French? I want to know stuff like 'I'm sorry but I don't speak much French' Just things that allow me to be slightly above the average English idiot! I hate going to a country and knowing nothing of their language. It's rude and ignorant not to make the effort!

There are some pretty awesome European metal/hard rock bands though.

I would like to. We could also enlist Triactus (I don't think TON could overcome his dislike for French though). We'd have to make a new thread, this can be fun.

'I'm sorry but I don't speak much French'

Je suis désolé mais je ne parle pas bien français.

Let me tell you by the way that after reading what you've posted in French I'm pretty sure you're miles away from your "average English idiot" IMO the most important thing is the willingness to learn and you've got plenty of that.

I'd speak English exclusively if I wasn't stuck in a province of moronic French-Canadians. I was told a couple of ttimes I have a vague British accent while speaking English..Which is weird.

It will have to wait a bit, though. I still don't have a mic, but I hope to have one in the future. Smile

I'll have to plug my microphone, get my voice back and find a quiet place where I could record something without facing uwanted noises or interruptions. That's a lot!

Oh, like "the voices"? Does the mic pick them up or is it just in your head? What do they tell you to do? Very Happy

Finding a quiet spot or time is the hardest thing. I imagine to be a successful professional Voice Actor you need a soundproof room.

Remember DO NOT USE A CAMCORDER MIC.

Eventually if we are successful we will need some one who knows sound equipment. Not worry about that now.

Good one Triactus.
