Haha – I live In England so I guess I have an English accent! Whether it’s nice or not is someone elses call! When I visited friends in NY they loved my accent though :P

I’m English and get told that I’m well-spoken, which is probably because I sound like I belong on the BBC. There are so many regional differences that there’s no such thing as an “English accent” really, but I guess mine is the type that people outside the UK would think of as English.

I don’t think I have.. It just a normal Norwegian accent ;) But not like the politicians who speak English!

I love Englishmen’s accents! That’s hot, like Ed Westwick/Chuck bass!

if you mean English as in British, I know this sounds silly, but try listening to some of Keira Knightley’s more posh roles. She’s closer to our age than someone like Helen Mirren, or Julie Andrews or some of the other women known for their classy voices. (but those are good choices too)

at first when I saw the title of the thread I was tempted to say “my boyfriend does!!” haha. He’s a brit, but I just think he’s cute, not exactly posh. :-P

thanks! I’ve had to do british accents in plays before (theatre major) so I know that there are also websites you can go specifically for dialogue help, but those people tend to speak unnaturally to emphasize the certain speech patterns and vowel sounds native to their particular accent…so it’s better to just find someone around your age that’s your own gender to listen to.

one of the most likeable, swoon-able & want-able accent of all times. my bosses are mostly english but they dont sound like each other as they come from all over england and accents depends on areas where they grew up in.

I agree on watching / listening to BBC & Keira Knightley. :)

Speaking of.. I’ve twice mistook South African accents for another, English once and second Australian. So you do have to be careful who you listen to speak with an accent. haha
