    You'll just pick up more of our 'slang words' rather than the actual accent. You wont ever get a full blown scouser accent i doubt, even if you moved here forever. xD I think its the type of accent you can only ever really aquire after being raised here. LOL

    And shh, the accent even isnt that bad. Atleast if you're living in liverpool it isnt. I actually like the scouse accent, its better then a stuck up posh accent in my opinion. LOL

    Oh and also, do not go to Liverpool with this attitude. Everyone will actually hate you and think you're a snob... people from Liverpool are very proud of their accent and really like people who are down to earth and open. Not people who are "scared" of "catching" an accent.
    Hey, Don't get me wrong i Love the accent =). My parents hate it which is why I'm asking. I wouldn't mind picking it up as i think it is lovely. I think when i come home I should deliberately speak like that to pee them off x

    I find my voice adapting to match other people's a little as well sometimes... odd, isn't it. I hope I don't pick up a Leeds accent at uni, no offence meant to anyone from Yorkshire

    Learn to lipread and then walk around with your fingers jammed in your ears all the time - I think it's the only sensible answer to catching an accent.

    You won't gain an accent I have been at uni in Birmingham for 4 years and still got my London accent because in university everyone is from all over the place.

    Oh wow, some of these responses are ridiculous. 'Not worth it' pffffft.
    The likelyhood is, if you go with that attitude, the scouse people you meet won't really want to speak to you.
    We're very friendly, and very welcoming. But we are most definately proud of where we come from, regardless of stigma. If you come here, you'll realise that the majority of the stuff said about liverpool is purely over-dramatised. It's a lovely city, with people always willing to help you out.

    Not only will you develop a scouse accent, but we'll rob you of all your possessions and dreams as soon as you enter the city boundries.

    Very doubtful since you will be living with people from all over the country, not just Liverpool. I live just outside of Liverpool and don't think I have a scouse accent but when I meet people from other parts of the country they instantly pick up on it!!
