Just saw this huge and confusing map of all the different English dialects. Some of them you can click on and it will take you an example you can watch/listen to.

That seems very interesting on the accents and dialects in different parts of the US but unfortunately I'm not teacher so I don't understand what they are saying.

May be some one can explain it better for all of us here on what they are saying.

I've seen it before. It's very interesting and pretty accurate based on what I've heard and where I've been.
