Soundcomparisons.com is a great site for listening to how a certain word is pronounced in different accents of English from all over the English-speaking world. Is there a site like this for French? That has the possibility to listen to the same word or the same sentences in different accents of French. It does not have to cover all French speaking countries. I'd be happy with just France.

    to my knowledge there aren't so much well-established, evolved and specific dialects in French when compared for instance to Germany, where pure dialect speakers north vs. south and east vs. west have a hard time understanding each other, so TV stations often show standard German subtitles in bavarian TV ;)

  • It seems like you're right, @Hauser. BBC reported 2011 that "Compared with Britain, France has extremely few regional accents", although what accents there are, they seem to have become more appreciated lately.

You may try accents de france for accents from France.

There are much more differences with Quebec, Switzerland, Belgium, North African and Central African countries.
