I think that the American one is more interesting. I prefer it. But I also think that if someone speaks slow the British accent is easier to understand. But I think the "sounds" when the American girl speaks are better.

I think that the two pronunciations are quite different in all the words that you said. I personally prefer the American accent, because I think it's easier to understand, because even if the "r" is pronounced really strong, or the "t" sound becomes "d", as I already knew it, i like it more than the British one, because this last accent doesn't let understand much more letters like the "r" between 2 letters in the words or in the last place of it. I've always prefered the american one

I am bored speaking in my American accent (live in Canada). I would love to speak in a British accent! Describing the difference between the two accents, I think British people really say the whole word. By that, I mean when Sophia said, "Butter", you can hear the hard 't'. On the other hand, when Natasha said Butter, she said it with a 'd'. Hope anyone understands lolol

I'd prefer both. But the British one is more polite and sophisticated. I really like it. And if I talk about American, it's more easy going. I try to speak in the former but fail. LOL. It's difficult for us as we ain't naive. Though I was taught British accent (way of speaking) in our language classes school, it was difficult to maintain the flow. The Language teacher, well, was really good at it. :P
