There are many accents spoken worldwide, namely:
1. French from France
2. French from Quebec, Canada
3. International French (northern Africa)
4. Other accent (describe it!)
j'aime l'accent canadien et aussi l'accent belge.. en fait j'aime tout les accents, ces ceux qui rendent les gens si proches et si differents en meme temps et qui montre son appartenance..
French from Belgium is also nice
Alexis, I like from France but I also like when some friends Tunisians talk, they are emigrants in Canada but in Bristish part so is funny because they don't talk like in the video, they talk the french with Arabic or just English.
Without offence but the accent of video looks wretched, ins't kind of french I like hear
Well I'm a French native and I 'only' like the French from France. Not that the others sound bad, but I like clarity. But I come from a very international background so I'm very open to all accents. I like particulary when people mix French with other languages, I just think French get along with a lot of different languages. Also I'd like to precise that 'French from France' is bit vague. If you're not native you may not be able to notice the differences, but French not spoken the same everywhere in France.
Concerning the neighbouring French speaking countries, like Belgium or Switzerland, I always get the feelings that people from those places speak slowly (maybe it's be that talk to fast).
Canadian French is hilarious, though not understandable at all (sometimes I wonder if they talk French despite being a native, take a look at that http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJn7j7WYS5c )
I like from France and Northern Africa I have some friends from Tunisia and I like when they mix the Arabic with the french
