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.
