Best Accents

The Top Ten
1 British

Naturally the Brit accent should be first - after an English accent; after a London accent - but most of all the best accent by far is a smooth north London accent. Islington in particular...hmm...

American? Really? This list just shows the number of sad Americans stowing away on the internet and voting for America as no one else does. @Britgirl I prefer south London. Bromley maybe.

Sexy and so enjoyable to listen to. I'm American and when holidaying in London I'm attracted to literally 100% of the girls because of their accents

2 American

American accents! Especially the NJ and NY ones. ; P JK I'm from Central NJ. We aren't boring, or uninteresting. We also have that wonderful capability of sounding dumb, or sounding like an intellectual. I do like British, Scottish, and French accents though. And an Indian accent is practically what I would have if I wasn't born in the USA.

Oh yeah your accent really is interesting at least for me. I am a non-American. But, most of my contemporaries hate it. I don't know why, may be I guess because they can't ever catch that speed.

3 Irish

I'm mostly Irish with a bit of German and I think Russian, so really the best combination lol (you'd think I could drink to my heart's content with that kind of blood inme, but no). My mom and dad were both mostly Irish, my grandpa was Irish and I'm sure more down his line of relatives, but my grandma was from a German lineage. I really love the Irish accent as the best one in my opinion and although I love to do it, sometimes I find it difficult but whenever I get upset or genuinely mad, the accent kicks in and I speak a little faster. Then people either can't take me seriously or become terrified. It takes a lot to genuinely set me off like that, though, because I really have to genuinely be upset. Anyway, 10/10 accent, it's always fun to do it and I usually get compliments when I manage to use it.

4 Australian

Australian is not a language. Australians speak English and there's nothing complex about it plus there's nothing American about the Australian accent. Chris Hemsworth has a beautiful speaking voice and when he's in an American film, of course he speaks with an American accent! I'm Australian and no one from another country has ever said that they can't understand me.

I'm really enjoying autralian accents, which I've known though YouTube (if you are looking for a gaming aussie channel, check out LazarBeam, he's very entertaining). At first I thought I didn't like it because I only associateed it with Melbourne accent and I'm not a fan of it, but once I found out about Sydney's and its surroundings I fell in love with it.

5 Polish

I'm pleased to see that Polish is on here. And though the Robersons don't think so it is a wonderful accent.

6 Italian

I say British is the best soccer player!
There good there the best and better then
The rest and that's all I need to say!?

I like the accent because it is very easy to replica and fun.

Say Ravioli with an Italian accent.

7 Indian

Indians did have a funny accent earlier, but that's in the past. If you observe now, the accent is getting better, its actually good to hear. Their pronunciations are so clear. I'm not an Indian but I just love and adore them and their culture

Dond dell me whad do do! Sorry, I love the Indian accent- it's actually really easy to imitate and it's very enjoyable to do and hear. I might not be Indian, myself- but I do love the accent, their culture, the people- they're all wonderful, funny and beautiful in their own ways.

8 French

Southern French is not a all mix of Italian and French, but from Occitan language (also called Proven├žal or Languedoc) is a Romance language spoken by about 1,500,000 people in southern France.
All Occitan speakers use French as their official and cultural language, but Occitan dialects are used for everyday purposes and show no signs of extinction.
Anyway it's a real funny accent.

Southern French is a mix of Italian and French accent... Who can pretend beat them?

French is similar to Italian as it is easy to replica and fun.

9 Scottish

Scottish is the most fun to replica as you can over exaggerate all words.

Endearing, old-worldly and calming.

10 Southern (American)

I'm from Tennessee, but not really the country part. My relatives are though, and I like the accent very well. I moved to a rural area recently, and I have a slight southern accent, but I wish it was more noticeable.

As someone living in the 'heart of the South', I never realized how unique Southern drawls and dialects were until I spent time in Colorado. Be proud, Southerners!

I'm in Northern America so I don't have that accent. But yeah, it sounds... very different.

The Contenders
11 Norwegian

Norwegian is always so nice to hear.

Most beautiful accent in the world.

12 New York
13 Spanish

I know a little Spanish, but not much. Their accent when speaking Spanish or even English is actually very pleasant to hear. I can't imitate their accent that well in English, but when I speak Spanish, I can do the accent pretty well.

Cause for school for a second language and I chose Spanish and I am good at it.

It's a beautiful representation of the language.

14 German

I am part German and I sang a song in chorus that was German.

15 Japanese
16 Swedish
17 Russian

The Russian accent is so interesting to listen to - all of the Slavic ones are quite good, but Russian takes the cake.
I know how everyone loves the British accent - I do too, but the Russian one is more amazing.

Russian accents make me laugh, every time I hear someone with a Russian accent I start getting the giggles and laughing.

I admit, this is my favorite accent.

18 Patois
19 Chinese

Chinese accents are loud and annoying but still funny.

Apparently not the accent of the future.

To the person who said Chinese accents are loud and annoying,

You're racist

20 Canadian

Canadians are amazing, what else is there to say?

21 South African

Best accent to imitate, too. Respectfully, of course.

I really think this accent is just attractive I love the way it has a mix of different languages

It's not number 1 because most people voting haven't heard it before

22 Californian

They don't have an accent, which makes it the gold standard.

23 New Zealand

Because they are very much like Britain's accents but they sound more relaxed and sexy.

Like Australian and South African accents put together, both awesome.

24 Jamaican
25 Trinidadian
