I'm glad I found this again! Definitely one of the most illuminating examples of what English sounds like to non-English speakers. Clap Catchy, too~ It sounds like you should understand it.. but you don't!

That was good, though! I didn't know what the hell was going on, but the sounds were so close to English, I felt like I understood when I'd hear it, but that feeling would automatically go away when I'd try to comprehend it.

I've always wondered what we sound like to others who speak a different language.  Living in Japan, they sound crazy so I'm sure I sound crazy to them. lol.  Those clips were really good!
