Ever Wonder What English Sounds Like to Foreigners?

Well you could ask our French-speaking blog boss, Yan, for his take…but why waste a perfect opportunity to watch a viral video?

This crazy song was written by Adriano Celantano in 1972 to show English-speakers what they sound like to un-comprehending foreigners. If you kind of zone out and let your mind go, you might actually mistake it for English. That’s because the song is composed of English phonemes (the sounds that make up our language) that have been jumbled up into jibberish.

How did this video strike you? Let us know in the comments!
