MANY English learners have difficulty deciding what kind of English accent they want to have. A US accent, perhaps modeled (模仿) on the way a Hollywood star speaks? Or maybe you want to imitate (模仿) the British accent of a BBC newsreader?

Young British people find the US accent attractive while young US people like a British accent. Especially when the person speaking is of the opposite sex! Let's listen to what they have to say.

Stephen Yang, 17, from London, UK:

A US accent is cute, especially when a girl speaks it. Whether it's Jessica Alba speaking or the girl-next-door, the way US girls speak has a sweet tingle that is really sassy (时髦). A girl from Texas recently moved into our neighborhood. Her Texan twang (鼻音) had all the boys here on their knees within seconds of meeting her.

To me, accents reflect (反映) the attitudes, characteristics and lifestyles of the people.

Jennifer Sun, 14, from New Jersey, US:

From watching English actors like Daniel Radcliffe, my friends and I have developed a soft spot for British men. Some are attracted to the qualities of English males, while others admire their sense of style.

Everyone, however, agrees that the most appealing (有吸引力的) aspect of an English man is his accent. For example, many American girls watch Harry Potter movies over and over again just to listen to the actors speak. 

The English accent seems almost like art.
