    I love it when someone tries to speak another language they're not fluent in. I find it adorable. <3

    But also, some British and Irish accents on their own.

    I find Belgian accents sexy (both french and dutch). When they speak in English, although I find it a wee bit strange sometimes, they sound so adorable.

    I like British English. It sounds cool. I want to be able to speak English like that xD

    Apart from that, hearing Germans speak French is astounding. Their pronunciation is almost flawless! (It helps that you guys have a lot of French words in your language).

    Actually, hearing anyone whose first language isn't French speak it is cool. First, you care enough to actually learn the language instead of using English. Second, I admire your dedication at remembering all the stupid rules and silent letters we have.

    I'm from California. We don't have accents. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    Believe it or not... Polish sounds pretty cool, if Peter is anything to go by!

    When I speak French it sounds awful. And I could never remember all the stupid rules. xD

    I do like a good southern Irish accent, knew a guy from area around Limerick once and my gosh was I tempted to hand him a phone book and start recording :wink:

    There's something about a Texan accent that makes me smile too, but I'm mainly on this side of the pond with my accent loves :wink:

    I really like the Swedish accent. A friend of mine sounds weird and funny at the same time when he speaks english.

    Soft, plumy Oxbridge accents

    Southern accents from the Tidewater or Charleston/Savannah areas

    Scottish accents, truly melt my butter

    I have a thing for Spanish accent in English. Somehow it sounds so much friendlier than any other accent. British accent is cool too and I'm trying to speak in a British way although I think my accent is South African due to me having lived there.

    I'm English, and I've thought about this a lot. I have a real thing for Scottish and Welsh blokes' accents! Not just that, but things that go with those accents, aspects of the culture...namely, I like a man in a kilt or rugby gear :wink:

    I honestly don't get the big hype about British accents, I kind of think they suck xD

    South African and Australian are my favourite but I like Dutch accents too. People being bilingual is so attractive to me though, us first language English speaking countries are so lazy.

    I absolutely adore people who speak Received Pronunciation (The Queen's English). I find it very distinguished. Scottish accents can also be really sexy, but only certain Scottish accents (I'm not sure what region it is that I really like).

    Personally I have a Suffolk accent. I don't think it's quite what English accent fanciers have in mind, it's a ridiculous way of talking. I'm quite proud of it though.

    To me a British or English accent is the kind of passive-aggressive upper class way how people with a degree from a prestigious university speak. Certainly not the low-class lad way of speaking.

    It's nice to see there's so many people who like our Aussie accents! :grin:

    Surprisingly, I mostly like a lot of American accents.
