Favorite Accents of People Speaking the English Language

The Top Ten
Queen's English

When most Americans say 'British', what they really mean is Received Pronunciation, I.e. the Queen's English. It's called 'Received' as it is how you'd generally teach pronunciation to a foreigner. But within the British Isles there are so many different dialects and accents: Cockney, Scouse, Geordie, Brummie, Welsh, Scottish (where I'm from), Cornish, Yorkshire, etc. No one but a foreigner would assert that there is one single British accent.

I don't belong to Britain but the British accent is literally flawless as it doesn't make you stress over words and let it flow naturly. It's sounds cool and impressive. Though no accent can make you sound perfect in English but this accent is highly learned by non-native speakers as it makes them feel more confident while talking in English.

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!

Really, there's no single "British accent" because there are so many. But my favourite accent is definitely the north east (Yorkshire) - probably because that's where my family's from.

Irish

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

The Irish accent is the best! Don't like the belfast one though! Sometimes people from other countries don't understand me but they still say they love my accent! Don't like the English one! Its to propper!

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.

Love being from Belfast

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

Russian

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.

I love the Russian accent because it is just very rough and tough sounding but it is still very graceful and beautiful.

I have a thick Russian accent. Everybody hates it and nobody ever knows what I'm saying.

Although British sounds the most sophisticated, Russian sounds the most badass.

German

Why are you saying little information on German accents you don't even the reason

I like a lot the German accent

When you say Nine,you literally spell it like Nein.

Ve haf vays of making you talk...

Ach mein got I haf done done a poopoo in mein lederhosen!

Scottish

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!

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

Nice and pleasant to listen to. Wondering why 3th place. Clearly the best accent so far.

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

French

My lover is French and his lover is also French as is his mother and his mothers lover and her lover who also loves another lover who is also French and as it happens also has a French lover who is engaged to a lover of French who loves lovingly the lovely French language of love. I myself puke myself daft at the very sound of the French accent but it is the puke of love or loveliness.

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.

Such an elegant and charming accent. It is nice and timid, this is perfect! British accents are super annoying!

Italian

The Italian accent sounds so enthusiastic and romantic without even trying to be.

An Italian speaking English what a big joke.

Music to my ears! I could listen to it all day...

Italian accent is such a turn on

Australian

Haha, I'm ozzie too. I'm also proud of my accent, many people who moved from different countries to my school say that ''Aussies have such a clear way of speaking.''
And I have no idea if the rest of the country have different accents since I've only lived in Sydney..I suppose people in ACT and Sunshine coast have a slightly different accent maybe?

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 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.

LOL at Canada.
There's a serious bias when Canada is further on the list than America because a lot of them sound exactly the same.
But you guys keep lying to yourselves.
The honest truth: 1. Australian 2. Southern American 3.British

Japanese

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

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

The coolest accent in the world

Ling ling is my name

Swedish

Believe it or not, it is incredibly difficult to imitate a Swedish accent.

I just love swedish people because I'm one

I fell almost like british. because I love british accent

Swedish or Dutch is nice

The Contenders
Jamaican

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.

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

Wonderful accent... I don't understand how people confuse our accent with the Trini accent. Here's something fun to say "wah yuh deh pan? " = how are you doing/what's up with you?

The patois accent is very pretty, thanks to people like Rihanna.

New Zealand

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.

Proper educated New Zealand accents put it over Aussies. There just aren't enough of us to vote for New Zealand.

Why do we bash the Aussies? We are supposed to be friends with them. I think both accents are brilliant/

New Zealand is much better then Australians with their whiney accent. We aren't as warm, and we're awesomly nature protected

New York

Yeah. Totally a country

You Towkin' to me? You beddah be.

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

Coffee baby

Indian

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.

The Indian accent is the best of all! I've got no clue how other people rank accents but I rank them according to their flow, the comfortability level of understanding and most important of all.. Clarity... The Indian accent excels in all these factors!

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

Canadian

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.

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

Beautiful. Is a posher American accent. Michael Buble's speaking voice is like velvet on my ears.

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

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.

Cornish

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

American Deep South

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.

The sounds out of Dixieland are the best on the continent. From the drawls to the twangs the Southern Speech has everything needed to showcase the most beautiful elements of English as can be heard.

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

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

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

Southern

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

Like Forrest Gump.

Geordie

Like a Perrie Edwards.

Polish

WubWoofWolf, enough said

Welsh

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.

I'm welsh and personally I think it's the best accent ever! There's the post welsh people in North Wales and there's the amazing south walian accent in South Wales

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

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

South African

We speak the clearest queens accent in the world compared to the American and the everyday brit

We speak clearly and also have a few cool, catchy slangs of our own.

Love their accents, it's like almost British but more relaxed.

It is unique, almost similar to an american accent

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
