Favorite Accents of People Speaking the English Language

The Top Ten

1 British

There's so many kinds of accents in Britain, it needs to be narrowed down a bit.

The accent in the south east of Britain is the best. However the people up north don't actually speak English, they merely point at things and make grunting noises.

There is no exact 'British accent' as Britain is made of multiple different accents but I think the one you're referring to is the southern English accent which I agree is the nicest accent

I hate this accent - Har-Jak

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. - mgenet

What the hell... Irish? Really? Is this a joke? The English accent is the best!

I love the northern irish accent

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

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!

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

Good

Russians sound so bad ass when they speak English

Russian accent is great I think

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.

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.

My God are all the people who voted for this accent are wrong
It is infuriating - Har-Jak

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

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

14 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.

15 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.

Damn, I love Indian accent! Reminds me of raj koothrappali from big bang theory! His accent is the best thing about the show.

So sorry but when Indian people speak English I just can't help myself laughing.

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

17 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.

Yes they are so cool more maple syrup

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.

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

19 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.

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

Beautiful sounding accent, I could listen to it all day!

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

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

21 Southern

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

22 Geordie

WubWoofWolf, enough said

24 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.

Since Americans lived. stated In the Philippines for long years. I believed most of my fellow Filipinos speaks, sounds and accent like Americans. Although accent for me is not that so important, as long you speak English fluently, effectively. With proper Articulation, pronunciation, expression enough to be understood. English is the second language in my country, Philippines are the best speaking English people in ASIA. I'M PROUD TO BE A FILIPINO and as DTM... Distinguish Toast Master during my time in PH👍👌😄

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.

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

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 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:

28 Trini

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

I am canadian and I moved to Trinidad the accent is sometimes hard to understand

29 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.

Lovely accent

31 Spanish

Why isn't this up higher on the list? Spanish speakers, from Spain, have a beautiful accent.

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.
