"If we actually go to London or watch British dramas, their accents sound very different from one of Standard British English."

Not all Brits can do flawless Yankee accents either though. Don't believe me? Just check out Benedict Cumberbatch's cumbersome 'Murican accent in Marvel's new 'Dr Strange' trailer. Yikes...
