So is that true?
Do you Americans have a hard time understanding Welsh dialogue?
OK, here’s one of my favourite shows on TV at the moment. It’s called Stella, and it’s set in a fictional village/town called Pontyberry in Wales. Watch the clip and tell me if you:
A: Easily understand the dialogue and get the humour
B: Understand the dialogue but don’t get the humour
C: Don’t understand a fricking word they’re saying
(This scene features Stella, her dopey ex-husband and the woman he cheated on her with)

I take for granted my total understanding of Shows like True Blood, where the southern dialect is thicker than molasses. I just expect everybody to understand all forms of English, especially the TV kind.
So, what’s your answer, A, B, or C?
