Favorite Accents of People Speaking the English Language

The Top TenXW

1British

There's so many kinds of accents in Britain, it needs to be narrowed down a bit.

I thought this would be higher rate, I love British people! Sometimes I wish I were British. Like one time, this British guy was talking to me, I couldn't help be crack up. It's just funny how they pronounce their Ts, laugh out loud! - lovergirl923

Whoever made this list HAS to be American. British and English is not the same.

Just saying - floridiancat

I want to speak English language with a British accent.

I would have voted for the geordies if they had been here. I think its fantastic that you can have such diversity in language that sometimes you have no idea what people are saying. there seems to be more differences of accent in the uk than there is in america... Surfer speak would have been good too... Dude - Cantonez

I think an Irish woman speaking English is the most sensual sound there is around. Italian and American Southern would be right behind the Irish. - mgenet

Love being from Belfast

My Canadian boyfriend loves my accent, it turns him on so much... And everyone loves our accent!

I'm from cork best accent around

Greatest accents in the world the way they pronounce words and roll their R's. I wish I could talk like a them.

Good Old Scottish Accent one of the best I have to say should climb up the ladder!

I am Scottish but I don't sound Scottish, but some of my friends that don't speak Scottish say my accent is pretty strong. Best accent by far!

Yes go on Scotland!

5French

My lover is French with a so charming accent.
What I didn't know before is that French do LoVe accents form other people who speak French or not. I Improve my French which is one of the richest language and people always love my accent. Thanks France.

I like French accent it's so charming and shy, it's like the French they so adore my English accent when I try to speak this difficult but so precise living language.

I agree, even though I'm an Ozzie, I have to say I'm proud to have this accent. I never knew how strong it actually was until I spoke to a couple of Europeans who couldn't understand a word I was saying but said that they loved my accent, all the same lol.

Takanori Nishikawa's accent is the cutest thing in the world! - Sugoi

Yea and he is really sexy and pretty. I like it when he sung on soul eater for the opening.

The coolest accent in the world - ronluna

8Russian

I don't know how it sounds but I prefer it because it is easy for understanding. - Alex_Sandra

I love the sound of the Russian language; it comes from such a different place in the voice from English. Whilst English is spoken from the throat, Russian is more of a chest-y language.

13Filipino

Yes. I'm a filipino and once I had a phone call with my customer, he doesn't even know where I come from and guess what? He told me "you know what, I like your accent. It sounds cool." Philippines has 127 dialects, we use our national language to understand people from other places all over the country, not rarely we speak English as well so we can understand everybody.

I agree, Philippines has the most neutral accent all over the world, very easy to understand as compared to other countries in the world. Filipinos can speak excellent English and as well as tagalog. The Philippines has 127 dialects but they can stll understand and speak better English with neutral accent.

Filipinos can speak pretty good english with a good accent people from whichever country can easily understand. I think they talk cute. Love the Filipinos.

We're very neutral on the way that we speak the English Language.

I'm from Canada, and personally I find we do say "eh", and our words slur together in a sexy way. Long Live Canadians!

I'm Canadian I feel like the accent is a more polite version of an American accent.

"Do you want to go smoke some pot? "
"No"
"I think you do mon"
hahahahaha The Office is hilarious! - 3anegroes

Wow, I find it really cool how they talk... It's like my neighbor-- no, he doesn't say "Mon", but, close enough.

Actually I'm a Jamaican and a Jamaican accent goes like this. Gyal guh round a di next door supamarket and buy two orange fi mi nyam. Which means Girl go to the next door supermarket and buy me some oranges to eat.

17Italian

An Italian speaking English what a big joke.

HEYYYYYYYYY! What you doing ha?! Just hillarious - manya93

It sounds so wrong and raucous, a real bawler to hear, absolutely atrocious for our ears.

I like the Italian accent a lot

18Oxford

I'm Australian and find that people who have spent years living in or near Oxford, have the clearest English accents. This accent is also gentle, making it easy to listen to, unlike some American accents that are clear but sound very harsh to me.

19Trini

Hey, it's my accent... Most people aren't familiar with it. Some mistake it for Jamaican. Can't imagine why though. But those that are lucky enough to hear it... Love it.

Beautiful accent, it's like a song to my ears. I can't imagine it being mistaken for Jamaican. - Reception

I am canadian and I moved to Trinidad the accent is sometimes hard to understand

It has a nice rhythm and it's very melodic.

You can never get rid of the Dutch accent, and I'm sure a lot of people hate it, but every time I hear someone speaking English with a Dutch accent it makes me kinda happy
