Best Accents

The Top Ten
1 British

Naturally the Brit accent should be first - after an English accent; after a London accent - but most of all the best accent by far is a smooth north London accent. Islington in particular...hmm...

American? Really? This list just shows the number of sad Americans stowing away on the internet and voting for America as no one else does. @Britgirl I prefer south London. Bromley maybe.

Sexy and so enjoyable to listen to. I'm American and when holidaying in London I'm attracted to literally 100% of the girls because of their accents

Yes, British is awesome, Indian is good (I guess) America? , Sorry if that offends you

But British accent tops it all

2 American

American accents! Especially the NJ and NY ones. ; P JK I'm from Central NJ. We aren't boring, or uninteresting. We also have that wonderful capability of sounding dumb, or sounding like an intellectual. I do like British, Scottish, and French accents though. And an Indian accent is practically what I would have if I wasn't born in the USA.

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.

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 am British but trying to master American accent by watching buzzfeed and other sorts of American channels on YouTube because I love the American accent it is the best.

3 Irish

British Accents are annoying and American Accents are too generic. Irish Accents are unique and entertaining. And their slang helps to entertain

I like how my accent sounds but the stereotypical Irish accent makes me and everyone I know cringe really bad. If you are a jacksepticeye fan keep in mind that nobody says "Top o' the mornin' to ye laddie" seriously.

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.

This Irish language is amazing. I was talking to someone once and I didn't know where the bloody hell I was. The person said "your accent is amazing".

4 Australian

I'm American and I'm starting to sound Australian, even when I'm not trying to. There are those times of the day, especially at work, where I just don't feel like I'm faking it. It does sound a bit similar to British, but I find Aussie more "aggressive", if you know what I'm trying to get at. Also, my girlfriend and I wanna visit Australia, and so lately, she's been quite amused with the Aussie me.

Australian is not a language. Australians speak English and there's nothing complex about it plus there's nothing American about the Australian accent. Chris Hemsworth has a beautiful speaking voice and when he's in an American film, of course he speaks with an American accent! I'm Australian and no one from another country has ever said that they can't understand me.

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.

I myself am an aussie and didn't realise that my accent would be so noticeable until I was speaking to someone from another country. But I would just like to say that fake australia accents are so obvious to point out.

5 Indian

You know we are funny when we Speak english!

I like when Indians with accents say the word "Goat"

The tranquil aspect alone deserves my vote.

Easy to understand and calm speech

6 Polish

I'm pleased to see that Polish is on here. And though the Robersons don't think so it is a wonderful accent.

7 Italian

I say British is the best soccer player!
There good there the best and better then
The rest and that's all I need to say!?

I like the accent because it is very easy to replica and fun.

Say Ravioli with an Italian accent.

I just like then and I'm part Italian.

8 French

Southern French is a mix of Italian and French accent... Who can pretend beat them?

French is similar to Italian as it is easy to replica and fun.

The language is beautiful and so is the accent

So amazing accent, also a really nice language.

9 Norwegian

Most beautiful accent in the world.

Norwegian is always so nice to hear.

Sounds like smoked wood

10 Scottish

Scottish is the most fun to replica as you can over exaggerate all words.

A right gid Scottie has the greatest accent

I am Scottish that's why I am voting people

Scotland is the best best.

The Contenders
11 Southern (American)

I’m from Tennessee, but not really the country part. My relatives are though, and I like the accent very well. I moved to a rural area recently, and I have a slight southern accent, but I wish it was more noticeable.

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.

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

12 New York

Specifically thé Bronx

13 Spanish

Cause for school for a second language and I chose Spanish and I am good at it.

It just sounds so good when the roll the Rrrr like CARRO ROJO DE CARRERA (some Puerto Rican’s can’t say that)

14 German

Ugh the Getman accent is actually amazing and sometimes I wish I had it like I love it so much

I am part German and I sang a song in chorus that was German.

It makes you sound tough and sexy

Sounds boss

15 Japanese

Yay! I'm Japanese, so this makes me proud lol

16 Swedish

It sounds awesome, it just sounds cool

Swedish always sounds like a song

17 Patois

The Trini Patwa tung go ham on all these bloodcla accents! Lol...

18 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.

Russian accents make me laugh, every time I hear someone with a Russian accent I start getting the giggles and laughing.

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

I am russian and I can definitely tell you that this accent is so hilariously bad that its good

19 Chinese

To the person who said Chinese accents are loud and annoying,

You're racist

Chinese accents are loud and annoying but still funny.

Apparently not the accent of the future.

20 South African

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

Literally is the best x especially Casper Lee's its just amazing

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

It doesn't get better

21 New Zealand

Because they are very much like Britain's accents but they sound more relaxed and sexy.

Like Australian and South African accents put together, both awesome.

New Zealand is Australias cousin, such a great accent that sounds incredible

Yo our accent is good as bro

22 Canadian

Canadian are the better American accent

As a cannadian,this accent's really amazing and I think this should come in the top 5 list(frankly speaking )

23 Californian

They don't have an accent, which makes it the gold standard.

24 Jamaican

Hi dem kashoooti, this accent makes me go bonkers

25 Trinidadian

Masters of broken dialect.

Triune is d ting
