How would you rank the various english accents while traveling?

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

    Refined/posh/upper-class british accent (like david bowie) is probably the best accent, people will assume you're nice and women like it.
    Irish and Scottish tend to be quite popular.
    Australian accent is well received in most places where Australians aren't just a nuisance like bali and thailand.
    American accent is probably a neutral at best and a negative in some places.
    For other countries where english is a second language, it's probably all neutral.

    And as far as foreigners know:
    NZ = Australian
    Posh Australian = British
    Canada = American

        Upper class/posh aussies sound british.

        whatever the accent is the one that sounds like they curl their words up towards the end if that makes sense, almost like a question and it gets higher pitched. 100% obnoxious and I will probably swing on you if we ever met irl

        You're talking about the (California) Valley girl accent. Yes, it is extremely annoying, and is used almost exclusively by upper class white girls, and gays.

        I have a very slight Southern accent (grew up in TX), but I can really ramp it up and sound full on country singer if I feel like it.

        Many such cases of people being curious about a Southern accent and it working out very well for me

        I know in the states, any kind of English/Irish/Australian accent is a massive advantage for getting laid. I've seen plenty of women get that look in their eyes just from a foreign guy talking. Shit's not fair. Like, I think most guys will hear an Anglo accent on a chick and think it sounds nice, but women will literally frick a dude just because of his accent.

        Didn't happen. 100% larp.

            I tried to date an american girl once when I was in a trip. Got mad at her after 5 minutes chatting as every 5 phrases that came out of her mouth, 2 were "it was like" and 1 was "oh my gosh". Damn, she was obnoxious and insufferable.

          It absolutely did happen. If you must know it was in a shitty sad town called Herkimer. We had to stay there because we were seeing Biggio get inducted into the HOF, and there were no rooms left in Cooperstown.

          I'm sorry your life is so boring and uneventful that you can't fathom a stranger on the internet having something interesting and memorable happening to them.

    As you said, it depends a lot of the regional accent. A lot of countries only only British or America 'TV accents' so won't have heard someone talk with a liverpudlian or a thick boston accent.

    LARPing as a white Texan cowboy (with Texan politeness, of course) goes over very well in rural America. Refined Brits are respected here; I've never seen a "Chav" visiting America.

    Liverpool accents are the worst possible thing you can hear. Just know you most likely will be robbed. Even though it’s like 35-40 miles away Manchester accents are actually nice.

    first off depending on where you are in the world a lot of people aren't even going to be able to distinguish one accent or dialect from another.

    but to answer your question, the american accent will probably be the most advantageous in situations where it applies. it's almost impossible to overstate what a cultural, social, economical, and military powerhouse the USA is, we are literally the most powerful entity to ever exist on earth. the only society that isn't influenced by us in any way are those Sentinel Island people that kill whatever washes up on their shore. we are admired, feared, and respected, and everyone wants to be in the good graces of an American

      Unironically can’t tell of this is troll post or just some moron topkek. The American accent is definitely the most neutral and easy to understand though, partially due to the prevalence of American media.

      I have a bit of drawl because I grew up in Virginia and some western sensibilities from living in Utah for a few years. People absolutely love it when I dial up the accent and play the cowboy bit. Europeans like it the most.

    >educated southern english accent/upper middle class english accent

    >all others
    US english can be the easiest to understand if they speak slowly (probably due the media) but they tend to talk fast. The southern english accent is great as well. Quite easy to grasp and they tend to speak it in a nice way, with pauses.
    Other british accents are really hard to understand (think glaswegian or geordie accent). Not sure about canadians but seem like americans. NZ and AUS are a bit hard to understand.
    I speak by my experience as a non native english speaker. Perhaps educated australians have a good accent. Not sure.

    There are three main Australian accents
    Received, General, Broad
    Basically upper class, middle class and working class. General is overwhelmingly the most common accent but foreigners always stereotype us as having the Broad accent. Basically a small number of posh c**t boomers have Received, it's a dying accent of wannabe brits.

      honestly I can't think of one I outright dislike
      but some are clearly geared differently.
      like indian or african accents are funny so a funny guy with one is good. but they aren't good for serious people.

    In terms of understandability, that general US accent (ohio) or southern (posh) english.

    In terms of likeability irish and australian are on top, then probably southern US and understandable scottish.

    As an australian, a southern accent does very well over here, assuming your views aren't ass-backwards
