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

British is the best

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!

The Irish accent is the improved version of the English accent.

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

Russian accent is great I think

Russians sound so bad ass when they speak English

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.

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?

13 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.

14 New York

Yeah. Totally a country

Ya, like totally NYC.

Coffee baby

"New Yorkers love it, you will too."
I adore New York accents!

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

17 Indian

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

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!

Best accent

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...

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!

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

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
