One of the most daunting tasks when traveling abroad is attempting to understand the language.

To most people, a different language can sound like complete gibberish as speech patterns, inflection and rhythms are different all over the world, let alone the words themselves.

YouTuber smoukahontas decided to demonstrate this in a video that's going viral.

Rather than actually speaking the language, she puts together a string of gibberish in each accent to demonstrate how a normal conversation can sound impossible to people who don't speak the language.

I figured some languages, like Japanese, would be very difficult for me to grasp, but even American English (the one we all know and love/hate) was pretty tough to follow.
