Yes, Dodge's comments about Stan hating Liverpool like the Tories xD

 

Speaking of Dodge, if he still has his Hull accent, I can say from working for a company from Hull that they have the shittest accent you'll ever hear. Without saying that to offend.

Those are good accents, just hard to understand for untrained ears.

 

The Hull accent makes people sound as if they have a peg on their nose when they speak and they also sound slow.

I like the Scouse accent to be honest. 

Spanish accents can be awful to understand as they say 18,563 words per second xD the standard Spanish accent is easy to understand, so are Mexicans and some Argentines when they dont speak in slang but the rest take alot of concentration. It's also easy in person as  people speak slower if you ask them but when you watch series, for example, you need to put on the Spanish subtitles to catch everything. 

@Inti Brian is easy to understand aswell.

 

I don't know how @carefreeluke copes in Andalucía xD

Chilean accent is the worse, Paraguayan is awful too, yeah i'd say Rio Platense accent, some of Spain's, Cuban and perhaps Peruvian are the easier ones.

Like Berserker said, Peru is one of the easier ones. Even when we speak fast it's not too difficult. For me the easiest one though is Mexican. At least spoken, when I read them using their own slang it's like reading Swahili xD

@Berserker @Inti Brian In Argentine Spanish, the letter "LL" sounds more like a "Ch" or "sh" sound, which you also hear in Uruguay and in Peru the letter "s" is pronounced like an "h" but with less emphasis on it. "Ehtamos" "mah tarde".

Obviously there is also the differences in pronunciation between the letter "c" in South America and Spain(except Andalucía and the Canaries). 

As for English accents try speaking to an old Irish fella who is drunk xD

Not sure which one stands out the most for me but one that maybe is more difficult than others to understand in my experience is the Argentinian accent. Then again, I know someone here from Argentina and I love her accent, almost Italian sounding.

I've got used to the one in Andalucía, in some ways it can be easier for English speakers because it's more similar to South American Spanish with pronunciation, for example, the 'Z'. And once you get used to the ways they pronounce words like 'ocupado', 'pesado' etc where they don't pronounce the 'D' it grows on you.

For me, what's more difficult to understand than accents is more the way people talk, girls in my experience tend to be easier to understand for example but in general, I think people have different styles of speaking, for example, some people mumble and hence are more difficult to understand. I don't know if I'm making sense here at all.

Spanish wise, in my experience my favourite I've come across would be the Argentian one or the Andalucían one. I could differentiate between the Spanish, Mexican, Argentinian accents but that's about it due to exposure. I don't know how different the accents are between the other South American countries for example. Then you've got the different word usage. I used to live with a Mexican and people from the south of Spain and there was this weird moment where I understood more than the Mexican because of the different use of words. I've also got a Chilean friend who was telling me how they use the word 'po' with everything as well and some other things which I've forgotten.

I don't believe there are many countries in the world that have such the variety of accents that the UK has though.

Yeah, our ll sounds like an sh, whereas Spaniards's D sounds like a Z, and they sure use the damn Z a lot.

Most common Argentine accent, Rio Platense/Porteño, sounds very similar to Italian yeah, it was very influenced by it. We also got quite a few other accents here, only people from Litoral and some from the South have a similar accent to us Porteños, and the first sound more like Uruguayans as they speak slower, than us. But you got like 8 very distinctive accents that are way more similar to that of neighbouring countries than Porteño. And also poor, marginal people (that most times are people from neighbouring countries or their descendants) sound nothing like the general population at least in Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area, and posh people living in Northern Great Buenos Aires have a distinctive accent too.

The UK has tons of accents. Some are absolutely horrible but others are brilliant.

Bristol, Hull and Bolton are by far the worst. Best would be Scouse, Northern Irish, cockney and Geordie.

Ah thats fair enough then, it's not so much the "S" sounding like an "H", but we do cut words in half sometimes mostly that have the letter S. So I can see why you would say that.

We also add an "ito" or "azo" to the end of every word. As for slang, we tend to end sentences with "webon" or "p"

For example, you're crazy in Peruvian Spanish can come out as "tas loco webon".

Chiquito in Peru is not as common as "chiquitito" and so on with similar words. 

You also hear the phrase "firme p" or "alucina" a lot. Actually the latter is mostly used within the richer population, who I find have a somewhat different accent to a poorer Peruvian. It's odd but listen to the 2 and you'll know what I'm talking about.

Chucha is a swear word I think only used in Peru. Bolivia might also use it but I'm not sure.

Cockney is terrible! 

Geordie is okay as long as it's not too thick to the point of being like 'wtf did he just say' 

Same with Irish. It can sound good on women but they speak so fast sometimes you have no idea.
