    For me it's just the opposite.

    It’s the opposite for me. Americans generally swallow their words so it makes everything much more complicated to understand.

    It depends on how much you are used to one.

    Doesn't the brits talk too fast? Americans are usually more relaxed and laid back.

    Its the opposite, British are more well spoken on average, it depends on the accent though.

    Brits call mumbling an "accent".


    The most easily understood out of them, are the northern Irish.

    Most don't even pronounce their "R's"

    The Irish indeed are very distinct when it comes to the English accent..the same also goes for the Scottish people too. The Southern redneck Americans have a very cool accent in my opinion.
