Most English learners talk about British or American accent. In my opinion, there is no British or American accent; I believe that people from these two countries speak differently, depending on the part of the country they come from.
In the UK and US and many other countries, there is lots of different accents or dialects. For instance, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries, where English is their first language. However, in these countries there are different accents and almost everybody can understand each other.
The determining factor to the accent one might want to stick to, could be based on what interests an individual, the country one lives and might visit in the future. Also, it could be related to one’s personality. Thus, I think it’s an individual choice.
Let me know what you think.
