Hey folks! Hope you all doing well.
I've been researching about english accents and then I got curious of how they sound for others -especially for native english speakers. There are soooo many accents (American, British, Irish, Canadian, South-African, Scottish, Indian, Australian, New Zealand's...) And basically all of them have 'internal' variations - I know - it's quite hard to talk of an american or british accent, for example, when inside these countries there is a lot of different ones as well.
I'd like to hear how each accent sounds for other people.
And which one is the prettiest/nicest? And why do you think that?
There is a YouTube video of a Londoner who amazingly speaks the English language in 24 different accents.
I do like to hear a variety of different English accents; but I'm partial to my native General American accent, which is the most widely spoken American English accent.

I actually sort of like the Brooklyn/New York based accent, which is mainly spoken by Americans of Italian origin, ( Not to confuse it with that spoken by Italian immigrants) if you had watched movies such as “ Good fellas”, then you know probably what I mean, it’s quite ironic how this accent in particular could sometimes be associated with Italian mafias and gangsters. But in general this accent can sure convey toughness when spoken, imitating that accent could prove useful whenever you get involved in an unplanned fight with some random stranger whom run into you in the street. Ha Ha
Hi Ivo, I like the Biritish accent for its sophistication and the TV shows (or maybe because I took the IELTS). I think the Birtish accent is popular even in the U.S and Canada. It's not difficult to tell the British accent; Some of my teachers are from Australia, I think it's something in between the B accent and the North American accent (hey...). Yes, and I also like the French accent haha (as I'm learning French).
Hey Aki, I also think indian accent really nice. And Victoria, what is the diffence between american and australian accent? It is hard to me to tell. I don't know australian accent very well I think.
I like the Australian accent. I'm American. I don't know why. I just like it haha.
