I think it's the hardest but nicest accent to do. I have a slight one even though I am chinese english! I hate china. Irish is unique

Hey, I'm Irish and a lot of people in my state spoke in the Irish accent. - SpinelliFan

Pototoes! that's all I have to say.

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

HOT

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.

ozzie ozzie ozzie
oh yeh the chicks love it a verbal aphrodesiac - djperth

I have an Australian accent (I have lived here my whole life) and in different parts of the country there are slightly different accents. I think the Northern Territory has a stronger accent than the rest of Australia, but I'm not 100% sure.

I'm the only person out of my family and friends who is able to detect the differences between a New Zealand and Australian and Canadian and American accent. I love different accents and dialects. I'm so fascinated by them. - Britgirl

The kiwi accent does not sound like an Australian accent. HUGE DIFFERENCE

I am from New Zealand, and have this accent.

13 Indian

Butt butt, ding ding. Fact: Indians are the single worst sounding people trying to speak and act English in th whole Asian subcontinent.

Iam an Indian but I don't speak gibberish all it takes is some good training

Sorry
Indian accent is better than American but not better then British
British English is really sexy.
And lovable

I am Indian with British accent and I love that
Indians listen up Hindi is best
But not Indian English.

Indian accent is a mixture of Hindi and other non sense words
This accent really make student struggle to understand English and this is why many English medium student from India are better in Hindi or other Indian languages.

Indian English sounds ridiculous, selfishness
(Because people think taking in Indian English mean educated, lol any language doesn't make you educated.).
Sometimes really funny.

Please don't kill English.
And also speak in Hindi with other Indians so that communication will be better. And pride of nation will be better

Indians are the most beautiful and clever people in the world. Your brilliant complexion and tanned skin tone really compliments their unique features.I am not Indian however every night I pray to Lord Jesus the Saviour in hopes that one day I will meet the love of my life and he will be Indian and when we make love he will yell in his sweet sweet Indian accent.

MY FAVORITE

Sure, it’s not a country, but it still is its own accent.

Yeah. Totally a country

Ya, like totally NYC.

15 Canadian

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.

Canadian urbanites sound more polished and clearer than rural canadians. accent is. Canadians generally have very good enunciation when they speak which makes them easy to understand. Of course, in some areas there are regional dialects that are heavy and not as easily understood.

Yes they are so cool more maple syrup

16 New Jersey

People refer to the "Jersey" accent as being the distinction accent by some communities in the North East of the state. Travel 30 min South and that accent disappears and doesn't reappear anywhere else in the state. Not everyone in the state sounds like a Guido.

17 Cornish

Being Cornish, I do find I really prenounce my r's fairly strongly

18 Deep South (redneck)

I have a very southern accent. I'm from Georgia. So me and a friend (which is from Canada) goes to Florida. Mind you the next state. She had to translate because they didn't understand me. That wasn't right at all.

Ahh SO SEXY! I have such a thing for this accent! - Bec

Especially love the old fashioned accents around alabama/georgia :D

Ron and Bobby from Lizard Lick Towing make this accent funny.

19 Icelandic

I personally just think it sounds really cool. I know a lot of people with a variety of different accents because I live in quite a diverse place (I have friends with Scottish, Italian and Polish accents) but Icelandic is by far my favourite! I myself have a British accent.

It is one of the most beautiful and relaxing accents to me personally.

Just listen to Bjork talk about her T.V.. You'll get it

20 Southern

Like Forrest Gump.

I have a southern belle accent myself, and I have to say I really really like it!

21 Geordie

Like a Perrie Edwards.

Like Ant & Dec

22 Polish

WubWoofWolf, enough said

23 Welsh

The greatest accent on earth. So underrated - Har-Jak

I'm from Northern Ireland but if ever marry someone she'll be welsh - wolphert

The Welsh accent is one of the most beautiful-sounding, melodic, lyrical and calming accents in the world. Thank you, Welsh people, for you have given Earth a gift in every word you say.

What can I say other than it's the best accent in the world!

It is unique, almost similar to an american accent

Absolutely beautiful! I am in love with this accent.

25 Filipino

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.

I am a Filipino. Thank you. Filipinos can also learn other languages faster than you ever think. I am learning Korean now and so as Japanese.

26 Ukrainian

It's definitely not similar to any counrties even Russian. I am ukrainian and I don't have a ukrainian accent but ours is like using some letters from our alphabet than using English letters, stuff like that

27 Oxford

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.

28 American

THE WORST ACCENT OF ALL!

American has good accent ever than any country

It's actually different from british

American male accents are hot.

Very Nice and smooth beautiful really.

At one point, this accent was number one. It may have fallen but still a sweet, sweet language for my sweet, sweet country TNT.

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

32 Dutch

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

The Dutch accent is very pretty, listen to Simone Simons speak, it's very relaxed and smooth, it's like French mixed with German. Dutch is also a pretty language

I just love it c:

Alec Fane, Native English (British) Author and Poet
Written Aug 22, 2015
My first thought was "sexy" but that's subjective and probably not the answer you're looking for.
Laura Brewwer has given a pretty good clinical answer, I'll try to round out the image with a more poetic one.

Brazilians tend to speak with an almost musical flow that seems to be common to romance languages. With the occasional discordant note where they struggle with proper pronunciation. (Usually with the hard Germanic elements.) The deeper male voice tends to produce a sound like a poetry recital, while the higher female voice almost seems to sing rather than speak.
English is quite a blocky language, and spoken by native speakers, it's a big square building made of big square bricks. Brazilians speak it in such a way as to add sweeping, graceful arches, delicately carved columns, and bright flowering gardens. They add beauty and rhythm to what is otherwise a rather plain and flat language.

34 Greek

Greek accent is just amazing when a Greek speaks English with this cute unique accent is just wonderful - matty101

The lovely, soft accent resulting from those who speak fluent Madarin or Cantonese, at home, speaking English with a subtle British accent.

Great

I'm not really that much of a fan of my homeland's accent, but I have a thick American accent, and the Hawaiian accent gets kind of old to hear after a while.
