British woman wakes up with Chinese accent
You might remember the woman from Plymouth, UK who went to sleep with a migraine and woke up with a "Chinese-sounding accent." Sarah Colwill insists she has never been to China and the accent is 100% real. Her diagnosis? The rare "foreign accent syndrome."
So is this for real?
There is now a BBC documentary on her condition, called ‘The Woman Who Woke Up Chinese,’ so you can watch it and tell us what you think!
Here is another segment of the documentary where Sarah meets another woman, Kay Russell, who has the same syndrome (but her accent is French). See the two women talk about how they're teased and their obstacles.
