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.

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

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.

Because I'm British

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.

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!

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.

MOTHA RUSSIA

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 like Australian because I'm proud of it and don't say ''good day mate'' that's British not Australian so don't think it is

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.

Because I like french accent.

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

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

Best and most unique in the world

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

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

I'm kiwi I didn't think we had an accent but apparently we do...

I am from New Zealand, and have this accent.

Cringe whenever I hear this dreadful, horrific accent.

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."
-Snapple
I adore New York accents!

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!

We love to spaek english

18 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 love Filipino accents

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!

I am 100% Welsh and I am proud to be

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
