You know when you come across someone foreign on Youtube who claims they can teach you to speak with a 'British accent', that you're in for a fun few minutes. A British accent???? What the hell is a British accent...? well - listen and learn.
If you are native to these islands, I suggest you pause when she reaches the 'garage' because you may need a toilet break, or perhaps you'll simply need to fetch a tissue?
But stick with her all the way through to the second lesson when she's ordering a coffee for Bobby - classic linguistic mince (thanks to John Wells for making my day).
Maybe someone should send her the Scottish lift sketch. If we all speak the same, this might be an eye-opener.

OMG...I'd love to see her butcher a New Zealand accent.
