The Top Ten

1
Irish
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.

2Australian
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.

3British
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!

5Trini
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.

Hi I'm a Trinidadian I love the way I speak laugh out loud

6French
Because I like french accent.
French are so sexy

7Oxford
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.

8Barbados

9Welsh
What can I say other than its the best accent in the world!
Beautiful sounding accent, I could listen to it all day!
awesome xxxxxxxxxxxxx what do you think

11Filipino
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.
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.
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.
