Anything Asian is usually pretty rough on the ears for us. Their traditional music drives me nuts too. :lol:

Received pronunciation. It's spoken mainly in posh areas of south England or by people who went to private schools. Famous examples would be the Queen, Margaret Thatcher, or the old fashioned BBC where they wouldn't allow any accents other than RP because they were too barbaric.

My favorite language to hear is French, Italian, Portuguese.
My favorite accent is Russian/Ukrainian. Reminds me of my family.



Least favorite is Chinese dialects. Sound horrible, no offense.
Oh and German.
And least favorite accents is Australian.

So it would be a very formal, enunciated form of English?

Favorite: French, it's my second language and I adore it. I would speak it all day, every day, everywhere if I could.



Least favorite: Maybe Chinese. It sounds so aggressive!
