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

Yeah, same here. From the day I set eyes on this website I fell in love with the accent, and the reason I watch too many films, animes, and shows is to just, you know, make my English sound better. Like, one day I actually decided to test my speaking skills by speaking with a British accent in the school assembly. Trust me, it was the worst assembly we've had all year. Not even a single soul could understand what I was getting at. :D But American's not bad either. It's easier to understand, preferably :)
