Karen Gillan teaches you Scottish colloquialisms

Ye ken?

Karen Gillan

Karen Gillan, former Doctor Who companion, teaches you how to speak Scottishly. It’s true what they say: you can take the girl out of Scotland (and deprive her of deep fried pizza) but ye cannae shove yer granny aff a bus. Or something. Just watch the video.


Note for Yanks and Sassenachs: Karen is mostly using a mixed East Coast/Highland accent and colloquialisms, not Glaswegian. You can tell from her use of the word “ken”, her soft burr, the look of Edinburgh Castle lit up at night, salt and sauce on chips, haar drifting in from the Firth of Forth…


Christ, I’m homesick.
