    Default British vs American accent online listening tests

    I am looking for online listening tests, to improve my ability to distinguish an English accent, if it is American or British.

    I do not want to listen: "I am walking on sidewalk" - "I am walking on pavement" and to say that this is American - British respectively.

    I want to listen a phrase, which is the same in both (for example: yesterday, I climbed a mountain), with a unique accent and then I will choose if it was said by an American or British man...

    In Cambridge dictionary: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/ you can listen the both accents for the most English words.

    Any suggestion? Thank you.

    I'm afraid I haven't come across such a site.
