I am a student in China. Because of the Hollywood movies, American songs and much more frequent contact with US than that of UK, American accent seems more popular.
However, the college teachers suggest that British accent is more acceptable in the world, especially in the world outside US. Is it true?
I want to know how would UKers react to American accent speaking callers and vice versa.
Do Americans like British accent on the phone when it is a sales call, for example?
I want opinions from only native English speakers, mainly UK and US citizens. Please state your nationality and your feelings about the accents.
