Transcript to Tracy Goodwin’s video:
“Now let’s practise the short ‘o’, and again I’ll give you words and sentences. I’ll say them standard American first, followed up with the British dialect.
Now some sentences:
Ron opted to ignore Dot
Lost coffee is not to be fought over
The dog was lost in the fog
The loft smelled like strong coffee”
OK, that’s Tracy Goodwin’s advice. Unfortunately, most of it is plain wrong. Sorry Tracy.
Here are some of the comments made on her YouTube page:
Somewhere in England there’s a bunch of poor Americans walking around talking like complete dicks because of this lady. Never in my life have I heard anyone say coffee like that. Ever. And I’ve live in England all my life.
Dear oh dear, that is class. Coffeeeeeeeeh. Brilliant. Do you do french accents too? Ha haw he haw
Never in all my days in Britain have I heared anyone say coffie like that.
She doesn’t have a clue. English people can understand Americans. We’re not retards that need to be spoken to in our ‘dialect’.
LOL lol lol lol!!!! The way she says coffEH is sooooooooooooooooooooo funny!!! i have a west coast accent but live in the UK, and let me tell you, that is sooooooooooo not how these people talk. Like, not one bit!!! Especially the way she says coffee, it is so not friggin’ “coffEH”! LOL. and that barbie thing she was on about is not bobby!!!! Certainly not!! LOL, what a freak! She ain’t no expert! ;]]]
