The Top Ten

1 British

Can't get any better

No such thing as a British accent. That's like saying 'Asian' accent. - truckturner

I've given up trying to teach this to people - even some obtuse Brits say "I have a British accent." Tsk! Honestly... - Britgirl

2 American

American's have a very wide range of regional accents forged from many different accents around the world, we are a nation of immigrants after all.


I'm an American and I want to know what our accent sounds like to non-Americans.

Oh yeah your accent really is interesting at least for me. I am a non-American. But, most of my contemporaries hate it. I don't know why, may be I guess because they can't ever catch that speed.

3 Irish

Can't get enough of Dublin accent mesmerising

The most beautiful accent

I'm part Irish and I can not stop loving Irish accents, I really wish I was full Irish because they have great pubs and the place looks great. It's a bummer I wasn't born there.

The Irish are the best! Sometimes some people don't understand us though!

I think the Australian accent is crikey amazing

I'm really enjoying autralian accents, which I've known though YouTube (if you are looking for a gaming aussie channel, check out LazarBeam, he's very entertaining). At first I thought I didn't like it because I only associateed it with Melbourne accent and I'm not a fan of it, but once I found out about Sydney's and its surroundings I fell in love with it.

Chris Hemsworth is the reason why the Australian Accent is the most complex and greatest of all time. Screw the American and British. Australian Accent comrpises between British and American

10 Southern (American)

As someone living in the 'heart of the South', I never realized how unique Southern drawls and dialects were until I spent time in Colorado. Be proud, Southerners!

I'm in Northern America so I don't have that accent. But yeah, it sounds... very different. - funnyuser

I love my southern accent. But when you leave the south people stare mostly when you say y'all

Most people voting on here are voting as if it's about "best nation", otherwise "British" and "American" wouldn't be the two top choices. I'm sorry, but whenever I hear someone with a British accent, I get the same vibes as when I listen to the blueberry girl from Willy Wonka. - UndaDaSea

Best accent to imitate, too. Respectfully, of course. - truckturner

It doesn't get better

It's not number 1 because most people voting haven't heard it before

19 Russian

The Russian accent is so interesting to listen to - all of the Slavic ones are quite good, but Russian takes the cake.
I know how everyone loves the British accent - I do too, but the Russian one is more amazing. - wrests

Russian accents are awesome

Russian is my favorite accent! (German is my second favorite.) I'm surprised that it's so low on the list.

Russia is my city
