    should learn American or British pronunciation?

    I am all at sea whether to learn American Pronunciation or British Pronunciation?
    I like some American sounds and some British sounds. Would it be wise to have both pronunciation simultaneously?

    That's very hard to say.

    Do you use BrE or AmE? Perhaps you should decide that way. It might be better to have your usage and pronunciation in sync.

    Is old-fashioned a synonym of right?
