Leann Rowe’s ordeal began eight years ago, when she woke up in Melbourne’s Austin Hospital after her accident, a major newspaper reported.
As her jaw began to heal, Rowe regained her ability to speak, but she noticed that she was slurring her words and it eventually changed into a French accent.
Rowe, who has fully recovered from her injuries, told the publication that although she studied French in school, she has never been to France and doesn’t have any French friends.
Rowe suffers from an extremely rare condition known as Foreign Accent Syndrome (FAS), which causes people to develop an accent different from their native way of speaking.
