It is probably easy if you are from Australia or England. But to North American English speakers, the accents sound similar. I can usually tell them apart quite easily, plus mannerisms between the two nations are different too.

It takes me a second most of the time but I can definitely do it. The accents I can't differentiate are australian and new zealander. They sound almost identical. I would need like a side by side comparison to even notice a dofference, if at all.

The mannerisms in English dialects are different too.

I have never thought that either sounded similar. Maybe because I watch a ton of British television

Now the real challenge is distinguishing accents between regions within the countries.

Ask them to say the word no. If they say noru then it's an Australian accent.

I think it sounds a bit more like "naru" but maybe that's a Melbourne thing.
