    Ur mum's obviously.

    Canadian accent amuses me (save for the French one, just sounds garbled nonsense even if it is more traditional than French from France).
    Finnish accent amuses me too.

    Irish maybe? They're tough to understand though.

    That is a rather wide ranging affair though.

    Though for the purposes of my amusement I shall be assuming the thickest Scouse accent is what gets your juices flowing.

    Persian and Texan. I grew up with both of them, so they're just fun to listen to people talk with them. Especially with how strongly accented a lot of Persian words that sound so amusing in sentences.

    Argentinian Spanish, it's the closest Spanish gets to Italian. And I love the Italian accent.

    German and French.

    Which one?

    There's Catalan, but it's not really Spanish, just shares words of the Latin vocab.

    Probably not this.

    Sure, but I decided to choose Argentinian Spanish for two reasons:

    -I'm more familiar with it.
    -Spanish is my native tongue, so I have a little bit of a bias here.

    In english... I think that I'm neutral about it but I like the way English english sounds.

    I hate the way Indi sounds, and I can't tolerate spain/argentina/south america spanish.

    I like the British English accents. Strong ones are both charming and amusing.

    As a Canadian speaking French I agree.

    even when they're speaking french it's garbled nonsense, we call it frenglish for a reason


    for me it's either german or russian, but my boyfriend is german so i might be biased

    Not Gaeilge, no. Although it's a pretty cool language.

    I'm watching a Western film featuring Clint Eastwood, and a Native Indian man and woman. The woman speaks in Navajo.

    Man, the Navajo language sounds beautiful and so smooth.

    That made me chuckle. Because, it's so vague it basically says nothing concrete.

    Exactly there are 37 recognised dialects in the UK so to say British English doesn't really tell us anything lol.

    To be fair we probably all know that when an American, or to a marginally lesser extent Canadian, says that they either mean received pronunciation (think the Queen or the BBC news reporter) or Estuary English (not quite as posh as RP but... basically still RP). The sort of thing you see in a film as either as a villain, an attractive young science/medic/historian lady wearing a rather tight top (and probably still a villain), something from a public school (note public=private elsewhere in the world because complicated historical reasons, though there are such things as true private schools. The thing that the vast majority of the population goes to is known as a state school), a period piece or maybe a visiting doctor. Some minor exceptions if they met cockney from a Guy Ritchie film (though most won't use rhyming slang) or maybe whatever Wallace and Gromit are supposed to be but that is unlikely to be called British English.

    Show them Welsh, Somerset (though they will probably think pirate), Mancunian, East Anglia (though they might think that is Somerset/Devon), Essex, Liverpudlian (that was the Scouse one I linked above, though neither was particularly strong), Birmingham (Brummie), Newcastle, the various Scottish efforts (never mind the Scots language stuff*), Yorkshire and... lost is usually how that goes, especially if the speaker has a thick accent or does not downplay it. Let's not even start with Northern Ireland.

    *there is some debate as to whether that is a separate language, note it is a different concept to the Scottish Gaelic, and even if it is not then it is really quite close to the edge.
