    Not Gonna Lie...

    I do this. Not a lot, cuz I don't talk a lot. But I do it with my close friends and roommates. My attempts are horrible, but they make my friends laugh, so I do it more. I wish I could do a real russian accent, as I think that is easily the sexiest accent. I only really know...

    I'm Really Good At

    Doing a British accent-- seriously, I could talk like that for days. In fact, I have before. My friends and I used to do that whenever we were drunk. For some reason alcohol made us English (I'm not quite sure how that works, ha ha). I can also do German, French, and Russian...

    I do that all the time. I thought i was going to get fired once. I had a boss who was from India and i was imitating him and making silly little stereotypical jokes. What i didn't know was that he was standing behind me the whole time. When i turned around he was looking very...

    People Seem To Like The English Accent

    But a lot of people don't realize that England has different accents per region, like how America has the South and Japan has Kyoto. Still, when people ask me which accent is my favorite, my response is ironic. "English." I love imitating "the" accent...namely the London accent...

    I speak with an Americanised accent

    I started speaking English in differents accents when I was in college. I found it was much easier to read in different accents but I usually speak in an Americanised accent. For this, I received much flak from my classmates. :P Speaking with a fake accent is a big no-no here in...

    English, Irish, British...

    Australian, Scottish, Italian...French.  I never keep 'em straight though.  I always transition from one accent to another within one word.  One word will be British, the next Irish, and I might end the sentence being Scottish or Australian.  It's still fun...

    Sphynx Accent

    Of the British accent and their appropriate language use. They are very precise. And do you notice how the southern accent is always extremely exaggerated as hillbilly or redneck? Its fun though.

    I like to talk in fake accents,

    it just really fun. I like russian accents! Just love how they sound and it just very sexy. Also Irish is very sexy also. Do you like to talk in fake accents? I don't do it in public, I just do when I want to be funny and just when I'm bored.

    Sometimes I talk in fake accents, I also tend to sing a lot too. I had an exchange student for a while and found myself very conscious of my fake accents. If I slipped and began using one I felt so bad, I wondered if she thought I was making fun of her. My husband does it too so...

    For Entertainment Purposes Only

    I just used to imitate certain accents for when I did prank calls XD Nothing heavy though. The only time I really talk in a fake accent now, is when I mimic a person's voice with an accent if we're joking around with each other and they are picking on me about my voice.

    I Don't Mean to

    I never want to talk in a fake accent around people with actual accents because I'm afraid they'll think I'm making fun of them and also because I'm not very good at them.  However, sometimes I just slip in and out of them. It becomes very awkward at times because once I...

    I Love To Fake American Accents

    I was born in a very British area in Canada, and since my parents were British and just moved to Canada from England. so I was born with an English accent. I still retain the accent, but I fake an American accent just to fit in
