Well, the question is which British accent are we talking about. For allot of us outside the British Isles, we always believe the British accent is that of the upper crust gentleman with the Bowler Hat. English from the British Isles at its best is supposed to be known as "The Queen's English" For me, I like the sound of that accent. It gives on an air of sophistication and people who use that accent seem to be able to get allot of admiration (particularly in the USA - everyone will ask where you got that lovely accent from). But then there are allot of other accents from the British Isles. Cockney, the accent used by people from the rougher parts of London can sound like a foreign language to those who have never heard it. I grew up in London, so I am quite comfortable with the accent. However, I would not be over joyed if I had kids who spoke Cockney on a regular basis. Another accent that seems quite popular with people is the Scottish Accent. I guess we have Sean Connery as James Bond to thank for making the Scottish accent one that people like. Irish and Welsh accent have a nice musical twist to them. I think many American's, particularly the guys from Boston will be familiar with the Irish accent (which has variations between North and South, according to an Irish teacher of mine).

Yes! I absolutely adore the British accent! My fiance is from there, and I LOOOOOVE to hear him talk - I could listen all day and all night! I remember being little and playing "house" with my friends and I would always be "Sabrina" and I would always try and talk with a British accent. lol
