I went for a job in a school and at the interview was told by the interviewer that the fact that standardised English was not taugtht in schools was "short-changing the kids" as "no CEO in a multi-national firm speaks with a regional accent." Unfortunately he's right , especially when many of us have problems with 'real' English accents.

If someone says 'Paris' in a strong french accent they miss out the 's' and say it Paree (with the 'r' sounding very unlike an English 'r', more like a running g).
Would that still count as standard english? Or is it the grammar alone that makes it so?

i don't know maybe because nowdays its a world language cause any country needs to speak, even every person has their own accent, actually in the native language you have different accents like me, Ihave a ranchero accent, just to set an example
