    For me ( and maybe for all italians) standard american accent is the most easy to understand. On the opposite southern england RP is the most difficult. Australian and more northern english accents are in between.

    Pretty good, but even in South Wales accents vary wildly from town to town, and where I am from Llanelli, and compare that to a little city 10 miles away “Swansea”, the accent difference is huge.

    Cork or Kerry, Ireland. Sounds like a Jamaican accent (and Jamaican accents do have an Irish influence from that region so it makes sense) and hearing it in a white person can fuck with your mind.
