'Can you guess where my accent is from?'

I was linked to this interesting game from Very Short List (a great daily email with a link to something interesting for the day - highly recommended!), in which you listen to somebody speaking two lines from a poem, and have to guess where their accent is from. Sounds simple, but I found it quite taxing to differentiate between many of the European accents!

Anyway, just thought it may be of interest to some of you out there :)
