English teacher from Liverpool teaches students to speak in Scouse accent... and it's adorable

While teaching English in Taiwan, Mr. Adam-John Whittaker incorporated a little something more into his lesson plans. 

Whittaker is originally from Liverpool. As many of you know, residents from this area often have a very distinct accent known as Scouse. Whittaker explains that the kids (and their parents!) love his accent, so he wanted to do a mini course in Scouse. 

Check out the video above and see these cute kids learn sayings like, "What's 'appenin?" "ay" "swerve it" and "now den".

She says that any of the coats that aren't picked up by her kids will be donated to a local church organization that helps transition kids in the foster care system.
