According to a recent poll conducted by British Airways, the most intelligent sounding accent in Britain is Geordie.
The survey was answered by 1,000 Americans and also found that Glaswegian was the ‘most sexy British accent’.
The Essex accent was seen as the least intelligent (perhaps Joey Essex has something to do with that?).
No mention of the Sunderland accent though…
Talking about accents, have you seen Charlotte Crosby’s Accent Challenge? She introduces the video by saying her own accent is ‘Geordie-slash-Mackemish’ – click here to see it.
Anyway, there’s some surprising news – enjoy a drink tonight to celebrate sounding more intelligent than the rest of Britain!
