    Ze Ruby’s français accent iz very good…

    I give up… Can’t do it.. -_-”

    The French accent was so good and funny. It is so true that some Singaporeans react how mb react the first time. Very ‘native’.

    mb’s second reaction reminds me of a certain hotel opposite Millennia Walk where they walk you to the toilet..

    Totally enjoyed it.

  2. Jack Says:

    I meant the podcast.. Not the ‘escorting’ to the toilet.. Hahaha..

    Great voices all!

    It’s not easy to reproduce accents as you need to have a good listening ear as well. :-)

  17. onlyme Says:

    Hilarious!!! Totally dig Ruby Pan…she’s great and such a pity she’s going to be a teacher. She would make a great commedian! On the other hand, her students are going to adore her!

  18. coolmosz Says:

    Yes, Ruby did a great job… I work in a French company, when I heard Ruby, I thought I heard my colleague in France speaking! I believe Ruby is a multilinguist? She knows the phonology and phonetics of the French language, that’s why she is able to do what she does - apply those to English and you’ll have French-accented English.

  19. frequenz Says:

    Great stuff out there! Ruby, you rock big time!!! I take my hat off!

    You guys really make my day bright!!! Hiam.. not Hump..

  20. Janey Says:

    Alamak! What’s wrong with you people, since when the French are native English speakers Lah! The native language of the French is French Mah! Don’t you know? The Gahmen thinks all White men are native English speakers. Can you don’t be like them, or not??
    But Actually Hor, your podcast is so Funnnnny. LOL.

  21. daniel Says:
