American, I used to have a really hard Brooklyn accent, but I got rid of it with a lot of lessons.

Well that's what we're taught at school over here. They try teaching us the British English but thanks to TV and radio we end up with this American/British mix. :D

Depends on the person I talk to really. I once met an english dude from peckham. At first I was using my regular amrican accent but after a while I took over his cockney accent.

My English needs lots of improvment before it has anything but Slovenian accent ;)! However, in school we were supposed to learn/speak British English ...

You should watch any British movie and you'll see... I think it's kinda hard to describe an accent. ;)

Same here, but since I learned some of it from hanging around the racing stables, I can have some irish pron. (horse, hurdle)
When I was in Tashkent (Uzbekistan) I met a girl with a broad american accsent, I asked her if she was american, but no she was Uzbek and had learned to speak english from her American teacher at the University in Tashkent. Later when I was with a Uzbek friend, I met her again. The girl almost refused to speak, being too shy to show her knowledge to us :sad:

Ooooo I have to say I don't like that weird expression, 'British English'

Its like saying 'French French' or Spanish Spanish' ;)

Surely its just called English? The orginal, the best, true form of the language. :) Not some mutant colonial version. :p

English is wot we speak in England and stuff. ;)

If we are talking about accents...there are at least several markedly different accents in England...mine being a bit like a posher version of what you might have seen in The Full Monty. Duck.

British influenced Jamaican English. Easily detected by a keen ear, or when I'm tired and frustrated and I eat my H and harden my T.

I'm all about the Canadian English...which *is* different from "American" (which is actually many many accents depending on region...for that matter, so is Canadian to an extent).
