Canadian Accent? Hello, I'm still-English-learning Korean. I can distinguish the American style English from British style English. (More vowel reductions...) I have been to the Unites States and Canada. Both of them speaks English. I think the English spoken in Canada is easier to listen to than in the U.S. But I don't know why. Can anyone explain what 'Canadian Accents'?

I live in the U.S. I am barely aware of the existence of any "Canadian accent." I can talk with someone from Canada for a long time until some little thing, like the pronunciation of "out," will make me wonder and ask "are you Canadian?" The anchor man of the (U.S.) ABC Network News for twenty years, Peter Jennings, was Canadian, and I think many U.S. listeners were completely unaware of it. In my opinion, there is more regional difference between places within the U.S. than there is between "U.S." and "Canadian" English.
