Now I know how to describe my accent when speaking French…

I realise now that when speaking standard French, I am speaking with an authentic Jersey accent.

Instead of murdering Frog with my crushing English tones, I am simply echoing Britain’s Norman heritage, still to be heard in the channel islands.

Eels sonn donjerurrr si lay chevo lay monj.

Bizarrely, this Jerriais news spot is followed by sections in Polish and Portugese. Modern Britain eh soopare, ness parr?

    I’ve been accused, although not in recent years, of speaking French with a German accent. Thus when in France I generally get mistaken for a Dutchgoat.
