What is your favourite accent and why?
lots of american people seem to love the British accent. which I find weird since that's what we use over here all the time!
personally I love the Geordie accent (newcastle) and the Jamaican accent!

I must ask, when Americans (or anyone in the USA for that matter) refer to a British accent, are they more specifically talking about the Queen's English? I know you referred to the Geordie's but is their one which is most commonly thought of as 'British'? Only saying you speak British is the equivalent of saying you speak American. There are multiple American accents much like there are accents in Britain such as 'Geordie' 'Scouse' 'Queen's English' 'Yorkshire accent' 'Scottish' and so on.
Personally I like the sort of Antonio Banderas Spanish accent (probably not what it's called so yay for contradiction).

I don't know, i guess i mean the standard BBC news anchor kind of accent. which gives you a strong idea of a british accent, while making sure it doesn't have traces of a specific accent as well. I'd say the Queen's English is the poshest you can get, so i don't know quite that!

What the BBC news anchors speak IS Queen's/King's English. They are well spoken and they don't mispronounce words like dropping the letter 't' and so on.

I really like Irish and Scottish accents, Russian is fun too.

I'm from Viriginia which is technically "the South" but it's not the deep south or anything, and I live in a more metropolitan area so you don't get as much Southern Twang around here as in the country, so I probably have a bit of a subtle one even though I don't hear it myself.

Oh yeah reminds me, a slight "Southern Belle" accent is pretty hot too. :3 Not really into the Appalachian or deeper drawls though. They just sound really redneckish to me.

French accent sounds hot, but never really cared for other accents.

You may think its weird, but again you guys don't notice it, its like people who think Canadian accents are hot. I ask myself, what is a Canadian accent-eh?

Australian is without a doubt the best accent. I have a thing for Irish accents as well with British coming in third. Not a big fan of French accent. I love it when they speak French though. It's so hot and always sounds so romantic.

I don't see it by country's accent. It depends on person to person. And, how articulate they are pronouncing.

Sometimes it's all about charisma and confidence.






Oh, cheerio.

Russian accents *are awesome xD!*
Italian-American (Mafia Accent) accents *are perfect!*

And when it comes to doing a comedy or something of the sort, British accents win every time xD
