Actually, there is nothing to do with having Thai accent because English is an international language,
so it is normal if we have global accent. However, Everyone has its own favourite. What's your favourite? I am personally into American accent more than other. Maybe I grew up with studying American English standard accent during my high school, that's why I feel that American accent is
easy to understand.

Perhaps, it's not about an accent preference, but instead it's about the familiarity.
Let's clarify what I mean. Among Thais we are pretty familiar with, of course, "American Accent" because American curricular and learning have been very influential. Let's think about since we were at primary school level until now which accent we have been familiar with. Another side, "British Accent" hasn't played the important role or been influential toward Thais. Hence, when people are used to something, they will perform quite well.

Accent doesn't matter that much in learning language
if your pronunciation is correct and clear.
I believe that if you speak English correctly and clearly,
it will bring you confidence as well as the accent.
Your natural accent meaning to say the near native accent will come afterwards.
At the end of the day, it is all about speaking English naturally and fluently,
no matter which accent you choose and have.

For me, I don't care much about an accent but I focus more on the pronunciation.
So I try to pronounce the words correctly, clearly, and fluently.
However, an accent which I prefer is "American accent".
I think it is very smooth and soft when I heard.

If you ask me, I prefer American accent. That is because it is easy to understand. I had never had a chance to listening to British accent, until I studied Drama taught by Ajarn Robert whose accent is British. To be honest, at the first place, I did not understand what he was speaking, but later I am getting familiar with his accent. However, I resist on preferring American accent because it sound sexier and easier.

These are not all 'English' accents. An English accent comes from England, American's have American accents, Australian's have Australian accents and so on -_-

Out of the list, my favourite would probably be South African, I quite like Scottish accents too.

Actually, I like any accent that can make me understand!! lol
But if you really want to know, I can answer easily.
I like British accent. I love the way that when I hear I feel happy and think that this accent is good and glamorous.
If I can have that accent I will be so happy, but it's hard anyway. I think at my age it's too late to change the accent. Sad

I think that our education system or our life familiar with American accent.
American accent is easy to understand more than British accent following the reason above.
I want to have the accent like American accent cause people in every level can understand it.
However; the most important thing is pronunciation of language to communicate with other people.
Just make it clear,and correct pronunciation. I love to watch foreign people that speak English on Youtube. It's very great that I can practice from it whether listening and speaking skill.

Sincerely, I like every kind of accent because they have their own fascination.
But for the preference, I like American English because it is the accent which is easy for me to understand.

Everyone told me that I have American accent.
I don't know why?
I used to hear British accent during I was a student, because I stayed at the Mom Tik Camp where surrounding with European volunteers. Yeah! Maybe I prefer to American accent.
However, whatever accent, just speak out it clearly and correctly that's enough.

I like American accent. From my thought, listening to American accent is
smooth more than other accents. For British accent, it seems like there is
something stuck in their throats. I cannot understand when they speak clearly.

For me, I prefer American accent.
Honestly, I am still confused about the accent between British and American but since I have learned with American accent from Youtube and I like to watch Amercan videos, so I would say that I prefer American accent.

I like Posh accent. You can listen to actors in 'Downton Abbey' talking for example.
It's really smooth and classy.
Actually I love all accent from UK
Irish one is terribly difficult to understand that even native speakers have no idea what Irish people are saying , but I really like them so much.

I prefer American accent.
It is easy to understand. Also, it is a fascinated accent for me.
British accent is very hard to understand. I often ask British people to say again
because I can't catch some words that they want to communicate to me. I think I be like that because most of my teachers have the American accent, so it makes me used to it more than British accent.

Actually "American accent" can be divided into many sub-categories like Southern, Boston, Jersey. All of which I can't see the difference though (apart from cowboyish Southerner).
Accents are very fun to play with.
I like British accent because it makes you sound 120% smarter.

I prefer American accent. I think it's easy to understand. However, I don't care much about the accent because we just pronunciation and speak correctly and clearly that's enough to make the others can understand. I think "English" doesn't have the specific accent to say, it can change or based on the accent that you begin to hear, learn, speak English language. I think like that.

I am crazy about British accent so much.
Because It is so difficult to speak and understand.
I do love the way of people speak in British accent.
I know that British accent is difficult but I want to try once.
I think that if I could speak British, my friends would jealous me.
But now my accent is Thai.

I like American accent.
Maybe, it's because I was taught to speak this accent.
I think it's more beautiful than British accent. (It is just my opinion!)
It sounds soft and beautiful when people pronounce the sound /r/.
