    Which accent do you like the most - would you like to change your accent? Do you want a partner with a particular one?

    RP :love:

    I wouldn't want to change my accent, 'cause it'd be embarrassing and it would seem like I was trying too hard...But I'd definitely like to marry a British guy

    Can someone explain to me what does 'RP' mean please? Otherwise, I'd go for the Irish accent.

    It goes:
    1.American
    2. Australian
    3. British
    4. Irish
    5. Scottish

    for all the majority english speaking countries.

    RP = Received Pronunciation

    It's the English accent.

    Favourite accent has to the Geordie accent :love: but the Spanish accent is quite sexy too! :mmm:

    Tbh, I like a few foreign accents

    I wouldn't change my accent...I love being Scottish (although I will admit that our accent can sound quite harsh sometimes on tv) :p:

    I hate it, for example some germans sound similar to english speakers, but theres no way for us the spanish to hide our accent! :banghead: and it makes people who have really good english to sound stupid once they open their mouth :mad2: Dont know, i guess its only my opinion, but unless it's someone who has a perfect pronunciation and is able to speak almost like a native....spanish accent sounds awful to me

    All the Spanish waiters/bar staff/hotel staff I've ever spoken who speak english really well don't sound stupid at all. Don't get yourself down about how you think you're percieved!
