The high school I went to did soccer scholarships. On top of that the two suburbs around it have the highest percentages of English immigrants in Western Australia, maybe in all of Australia. I can mostly understand them, but every time I hear it I die a little inside, so much so, that if a girl has that accent it's an instant deal breaker for me.

Native English speaker and I can't understand anyone from the UK.

My crisp central North American accent is the cats tits.

We all know everyone in England is secretly jealous of my mid-western American accent. Cockney bitches love it.

South African accent>Cockney accent

Don't know how that's even comparable, but hell if people are comparing Cockney to American here, this should be fine.

Now that, my friends, is a sexy accent.

British accents in general sound like people with speech impediments trying to talk.

Canadian accents are clearly the best (anywhere in between Alberta and Southern Ontario)
#16
Cockney or cockmouth or whatever it is, is ****ing mumbly and incomprehensible. They probably call it that because it sounds like they've got a dick in their mouth whenever they say something.
#17
The Cockney accent is Lemon, me ol' china! Just use your loaf and it'll all become ginger!

Seriously though, not hard to understand at all. You guys should hear some of the accents around here. North Side scumbags, Farmers from out west and travellers... you'll need several babelfish to decipher their shit.

Not even a native English speaker, and I understand most of it.

Cockney accents are definitely the best British accent. The best variation of english overall though is Canadians. They got it figured out.

I used to be fairly broad South London, time out of the country dampened it quite a bit. I still get called a cockney by bitches who don't know.

I can, my father's a cockney, from the old school.

I can understand it alright, but I completely and utterly hate it. The accent just sounds vulgar to me. Oddly enough, I do find myself liking Scottish accents quite a bit, so long as they aren't too thick.

And as for American accents (as an American, with a Midwest accent), my opinion ranges from neutral to extreme dislike. I hate southern and New England accents for the same reason I hate Cockney. I'm pretty neutral about the standard Midwest accent. It's extremely efficient and easy to understand, but also extremely boring.

As a New Englander, I really want to know what my accent sound like to other people. If by "New England", you mean Boston accents, then I understand your pain. But there's more than just the MA accent in New England.

Mid-west FTW! My cousin went to London and Rome this previous Summer and apparently guys swarmed to her and her friends to hear their mid-western accent.
