I guess it depends on which particular accent you are referring to... I mean, the British have accents for each region, practically... Surrey, Suffolk, Yorkshire, Cockney, etc... each one different slightly... same with American... I mean, you've got Brooklyn, Boston, Californian, Virginian, Texan etc... each one different. Personally, I don't have a preference for either one... I'm Australian so either one sounds a little weird to me...

I think that there are so many different accents in both America and England that it is difficult to say. I don't like a broad accent, as they are difficult to understand. I was listening to a recording of a speech by JFK, and it was difficult to detect any American accent at all, except in the pronunciation of a few words, like where he said mizul, (like in mistletoe) instead of missile. For the most part I prefer an English accent, as opposed to British. Irish, Welsh and Scottish accents can all be difficult to understand. But i also do not like the Texas drawl, and other broad American accents. Also, I don't like what we call the Queen's English where it sounds as though someone is speaking with a plum in there mouth, and making it very difficult to speak. A neutral accent is preferable for me.

Thanks for being so explicit.How would you define a neutral accent? Do you like the Indian English accent?

it really doesn't matter as you will always have a foreign accent not an american or british accent.

I like the British Accent, it sounds clean

Yes I agree with you,the British accent is CLASSICAL.It's very clean and easy to understand. American accent shortcut's every word. Like "LET US GO" will be pronounced as "SKO". I am trying to pick up American accent for Home based call centre work,so I want to know if people prefer British or American accent. Thank's for your answer.

i like british accent - living in a country where britishers ruled for 100 years you are taughtby all those who were taught by britishers the accent has just passed on down the line and has become easier to understand. Though here we speak english like hinglish-mixing hindi and english and speak in Indian accent now.
