    Look at what I found!


    This was from 2013. Not sure about Vogue, but Nikkie did manage to travel the world a bit. :) Also, I was surprised when I saw a video in the sidebar with her, clicked it, and heard her speak English without a discernible accent :0

    I went and watched some of her videos after I saw her on WIDM XD Just to see what she was like :P

    She speaks solely English, and doesn't seem to speak any Dutch in her videos XD Which is really crazy cause we pretty much ONLY heard her speak Dutch on WIDM XD hahaha What a twist!

    She definitely DOES have an accent though. Even just a few seconds of hearing her speak, you can definitely tell she has an accent XD Maybe that's because I've been surrounded by Aussies and Canadians so both of those are like my norm.

    Yeah, she definitely has an accent, but it's a light accent. I've heard Louis van Gaal (football coach) speak 'English'.... criiiiiinge :s Dutch sports people are usually not so good at speaking and sounding English.



    Watch this for the most horrible English you've ever heard. Be warned :warning:
  • icmnfrshicmnfrsh Posts: 16,905 Member
    In the video, they do mention her having an accent, and that in recent ones she adopted a more "American" one.

    And yeah, it's crazy because I got used to her speaking only Dutch during the show. I had no idea she did her videos in English. I suppose if you want to reach a wider audience, you have to speak the global lingua franca.

    Louis van Gaal mostly seems to have a hard time finding the right words, and his English is a bit unidiomatic. But this pronunciation is just fine :D

    Yeah @ChocoCub I have a discord.
    And Instagram and Snapchat and twitch.ect . XD i'm in lots of places.

    Didn't Nikki mention it somewhere in the show that she spoke mainly English on her youtube channel? And also. To sound like a plum what is unidiomatic? I honestly don't think I've heard that word before.
  • icmnfrshicmnfrsh Posts: 16,905 Member
    I must have learned that word only within the last few years. It means that his speech tends to use expressions that aren't clear to native speakers of the language. At least, from the few seconds I've heard, it seems to be that way.

    I must've missed the part where she said she mostly spoke English on her YouTube channel. People were shocked to learn that she was Dutch. Meanwhile, it was jarring for me to hear her in English when she almost exclusively spoke Dutch in WIDM. :D

    Make that the cat wise.

    *face palms* that now makes a lot of sense because it's obviously from the word idiom. I can not believe I didn't put that together.

    My boyfriend started reading Two Houses - only the first week so far - and he's loving it, he likes Marsha because her voice is fun, which yeah, it is. Marsha is...well, very fun to write, really.

    I think he's read some of my other past Sims seasons, so really I'm just trying to convert him to our ways.
    Maybe he needs to compete in something...hmm.

    [Might ask him to build the merge house, if he wants to. Find yourself a fellow Simmer, folks.]

    Send him the biggest thank-yous from the creator of Marsha Marshall himself. :)

    Pretty interesting - he might be converted... Gewbleh Gawbbewl! Wan uf Ush!

    I am reminded of this story of Rosana and Wouter. A Dutch couple who met eachother as Simmers and are now happily married with children. :blush:

    But yellow is such a vibrant colour, and it is almost appropriate because we are heading towards summer :joy:

    My partner won't play, He's not very competitive and isn't a fan of reality shows. :'(

    You've got a boyfriend already? Oh my, what am I doing with my 21 years of living on Earth without even dating anyone other than my guitar.

    You’ll get there, Choco. For now, a guitar is a good enough substitute - you can hug it tight to your body, at least.

    It took me until this year for a proper relationship, at least. It’s just about finding the someone, or them finding you. Which isn’t always so easy, I suppose.

    What if we all managed to convince a relative or parter or friend (someone?) to compete in a season of a BB-like show? Imagine how interesting it could be...

    I think any group of people forced tp play a reality show is interesting, but this would be ESPECIALLY fascinating :o

    Oh yeah true.

    Forcing people to play reality shows needs to happen more often, though I guess it's not very nice...
  • KelvinKelvin Posts: 6,333 Member
    Make them think they're going to an all-you-can-eat buffet but actually signing them up for a season of survivor, I like this idea.

    Yeah, though guitars are not very comfortable objects to cuddle with to be really honest. They're also cold on the outside :joy:

    Hey Everyone, over the next two weeks I may be a bit more off to messages more then usual as I have recently been approved a lease and will be moving out from my parents house soon. I still want to be in the games I am playing just want to keep everyone informed. I'll try my best to continuously check the forum during this time.

    Also #TeamKayle (for ZP)
    #GoLucasAndEthan (for Jetset)
    and #TheIslandHype (The Island)
    and finally #JusticeForPorsha (for Abnormality)
