I prefer other accents like Yorkshire accent, Birmingham accent, Geordie, Liverpool accent, Scottish accent, they all sound much better.

I like it!

As a foreigner, this was the accent that i was taught and trained to speak in.

Too bad my accent is Canadian now.

Haha really, I'm especially surprised that you prefer the Birmingham accent!

How can you be trained to speak the Queen's English? Surely it would just sound forced!

I speak as close to the queens English as most people get, I'm from Hertfordshire and so have a typical Southern England/Home Counties accent, I really dislike the accent, of course I sound like a typical 'British accent' but it's ever so dull and boring, plus I just sound incredibly posh, which I'm really not.

Yorkshire is the sexiest accent, but Queen's English is rather nice too.:ninja:

I have been told I sound very posh and speak well, so I wonder how far off from Queen's English I am ... :iiam:
