Dialect Translator

There are so many regional differences when it comes to how English is being spoken.
Imagine a conversation between Ali G, an Irishman, a Scot, a posh woman and a Scouser (a person from the Liverpool area).

Form groups of five and then agree on a topic for your conversation. Compose the script together, but only write down your part of the script. Then you type in your text in the translators below. You will then get a script which fits your regional dialect. Make sure you go into the character and try as hard as you can to get the accent right. It should be noted that this is a rather informal translation, but it will definitely be fun to act out in class.
