Haven't listened to your speaking, but as long as you speak properly people won't give a fuck about your accent (unless they like it). Besides you'll never get rid of your Catalan/Spanish accent as those were your natives tongues you learnt before 7yo. Up to this point is when the brain is "naturally open" to learn languages, all the other languages you learn from this point onwards it'll never be the same...

If you try very hard you can hide them but your native tongues will always be there.

True. I have colleagues at work that have been in London almost all their lifes, since they were 6-9 years old, and they still have their own accent.
I think Spanish accent in English is quite lovely, and many of my patients and co-workers think the same.

I've been four years speaking on a daily basis and still I don't have a clue on how to get rid of my very-open-Catalan accent :_)

I've been speaking english ever since I could talk. My parents put me in British Schools here in Spain. I can pull off a British accent if I want to, but I just speak regular English with a little Spanish touch (A random Olé at the end, and... OLE)

I'll say it again, I don't mind if J have accent. Actually, I like that everyone has a different accent at work. It's like our roots... And sometimes is funny xD.
I like a lot the Irish accent. In my next life, I've decided that I want to born Irish 😂😂

Regarding funny accents I like the stereotypical Scottish one, it's the only one I would consider "funny", and just because I relate it to Willie from The Simpsons.

Regarding preferences, I like the one from Southern England (which is better perceived outside of London).

The Scottish is quite difficult for me... I don't get used to it, and they usually speak very fast xD.
I find very funny as well the Indian accent xD.

Irish accent is nice except for scumbags, they sound dirty, everyone takes the piss out of their accent here cause it sounds retarded

I agree now that it was mentioned that Indian accent is pretty funny, how could I forget it knowing Apu and Raj? :lol:

However, I'd limit that to males. As for females I find it extremely pornographic and sexy.
