Re: Pronunciation help: all languages

The difficulty with the Welsh accent is not in the pronunciation of the individual words but with the overall variation in tone through each sentence. It's been called "musical". There are some quite a good videos here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cq-mEejECcU and here: https://www.youtube.com/w...
