We're all biased here!!! I was educated in a British school my whole life so I'm used to the way ppl talk. I love the way Brits talk - and its really cute on hot guys as a lot of ppl said here. Embarrassed

My cousins live in london and they speak british..and when they do I can barely understand 2 words they say cause they talk so fast LOL
But british english is more-so "proper" english and technically is the right way of speaking english. We canadians and americans speak slang english and that's why its confuses the britsh. Wink LOL Big smile

Being a Canadian, I prefer American english. Though british english sounds sophisticated and formal, i still prefer american english. Some people are choosing british english coz its formal, well thats exactly the reason why i am not choosing it.

Language is something that u use to express yourself. If you are not casual and comfortable with it then u are not able to express your self better. Tell me which one would u prefer to wear for a long time: a formal tight sophisticated party gown or a casual and comfortable pair of jeans with a good comfy top?

I would prefer the clothes that i am comfortable in and they is why i prefer canadian english coz i feel comfortable speaking in that accent. Though british english sounds good, i prefer american english for me coz it is casual and is more understandable Smile
