Come again?

With English spoken in almost every corner of the globe, local dialects are about as diverse as Darwin’s finches. It’s not uncommon, in fact, for native speakers to have a hard time understanding one another.

Not buying it? Then see if you can make out what this teen from Londonderry County in Northern Ireland is saying in a UTV interview about the frigid weather there. Without replaying the clip a dozen times.

Someone please cast this kid in Game of Thrones already.
