How would you rank the various english accents while traveling? Which is the most advantagous, which is neutral and which is a liability?
People talk about British accents being a plus but I don't think the people saying that have ever heard a Chav or his Sow open their mouths while abroad. I've heard of English teachers getting in trouble for having a Southern Drawl as well.
Worst off is probably the pidgin spoken by former British colonies
