Moi aussi.

I'm from Cambridge... the accent is very neutral. Generally you come across as being well-spoken, but not overly posh or pretentious.

I don't get you. There were many different accents because it was a boarding school so naturally you have people from all over the country.

No, I only asked as people are usually given elocution lessons when they speak with an 'undesirable' accent. I'm not trying to undermine you, I'm just interested!
