    Re: Spell a kids song please...

    Did the link in post #5 help?
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Unfortunately not. That link ignores the fuzzy little English sample at the beginning.

    Oh. That. It's incomprehensible. Is it really English? Guess I can't help after all. Sorry.

    Nobody understands the fuzzy kids sample? I always have said english is difficult, as the accent depends on the location, but really thought a native english/american would understand everything...
    Thanks anyway...

    No. I didn't even realize it was English. (I'm still not convinced, but if you all are . . . .)
