What do you think the hardest foriegn accent to understand is?

Eventhough Scottish people are really hard to understand I would have to say people from Louisiana. One of my friends cousins came here and when we would ask him where he was from he said something like "nawlns". We kept trying to figure out what he said and later we asked our friend what he was saying and he said he was from New Orleans.

Uh... Most people who learnt English as a second language are really hard to understand.

We say the same about you! If you look at the linguistics of each language it's actually you guys that say six as sex. New Zealanders clip vow sounds and Australians tend to pronounce more long vowels.

or teenage dropouts from Waikato or Taranaki, everything ends with an 'ow', or all words containing 'th' are replaced with an f, like somefing, or nofing

We rule. And i'm sorry, but when you say six, it's funny, when we say it, it sounds like six.

And indians are the confusing ones. I can never understand them.

My ex-girlfriend who was Bulgarian. She couldn't understand english people that well, even if she was fluent. Had sex with her and 5 minutes later, she said "Why did you say 'Who are you'?".

I seen the movie once and found that the Glen's Irish accent was pretty hard to understand. I like his accent though, I also think it is weird how accents don't shine through when people are singing.

America has the worst accent to understand they can't saying anything right. That also may have to do with the fact that they can't spell properly. They always miss out the U. Just listen to who runs their country.

Mr. America basher, US has MANY distinct accents, I think it is unfair to say that we don't say anything right. George Bush doesn't have an accent he has like a speech impedement or whatever that is called.

Usually if foreigners spend time learning the language (like here in my International School), they are easy to understand. It is sometimes hard with those natives that have their own little accent of the language and start talking really fast (Irish, Scottish, Jamaican etc)
