Poll Question:
US or British English?

Yeah that's the question. Which one would you rather learn (or learnt)? What accent do you like the most?

How is american english ever going to top this? Don't know why but british is just so awesome. Guess Monty Python and Rowan Atkinson (+many others) have done their part for it aswell.

Lol, and we make jokes about America as well. Does it even really matter if America makes jokes or if Australia makes jokes? Not really. Much more important things to worry about. lol

Actully I can't answer that question that well - I speak both - We don't get teached to speak British english nor do we learn american english, we learn to speak "english" in the form we like

I myself think I speak more american then british, but then again - we youngsters get affected by american movies, american games and other american culturial statements. England is making a notice of themselves anymore..

You separate into groups and have different teachers?

Scottish English.

Aw, ah sais. Ah wanted the radge tae jist f*ck off ootay ma visage, tae go oan his ain, n jist
leave us wi Jean-Claude. Oan the other hand, ah'd be gitting sick tae before long, and if that c*nt
went n scored, he'd haud oot oan us. They call urn Sick Boy, no because he's eywis sick wi junk
withdrawal, but because he's just one sick c*nt.


Quote from Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh. Yeah, I read it in original. Took me ages, but I did


I use American spelling myself and I find American accent easier to mimic (not the Texan one ofc!) so if I had to choose.. I'd say American. British English spoken by natives is pleasant for the ear, though

1) Aussie all the way!!! aussie accents.
2) There are many many many british accents.
3) I like the scottish one the most. Since it's the manliest (people wearing kilts... Come on!).
4) Welsh people speak with no vowels so that's also funny.
5) I regret that I voted, since the poll isn't what it should be!
