    Well, once I came to London, my parents never spoke in Dutch to me, I wasn't in a Dutch environment etc so there was no chance for me to speak Dutch.
    It would be so cool if you could speak it, you would get a good job. Can you understand it if someone speaks it to you?

    It is still cool. I sound posh when my cousins from Yorkshire come down, but people from Yorkshire are so friendly from the way they speak.

    I speak with the RP (Received Pronunciation) accent so it is fairly standard.
    Grew up in the North but I speak with an RP accent.
