In Berwick (pronounced Berik, not Bur-wik) you'll encounter 2 of the greatest indeciferable accents in the english accent, Scottish, and Geordie. If you're in a shop, in a pub or anywhere, and someone turns, says what seems a slow, well considered sentence.... and you don't understand a word, panic not! I'm a Berwick resident, and I've n qualms about telling some of my friends with broad accents I've no idea what they're saying! (or in Scottish "I havnay a cloo way yee on aboot"). Don't be shy, people from Australia, canada, america, and england, all of us united and also divided by a common language!
