I am learning English. Please stop telling me accent is not important. If I want to understood by everyone I need to learn an accent. I know no matter how hard I try, I will never sound perfect. But learning 80% is enough for me.
Everytime anyone say they want to learn Received Pronunciation, people will tell them not to learn it, as it sounds posh. So I think I should learn modern version of RP, but there is not enough resources on Youtube to learn it.
So is General American Accent the only choice for a non-native speaker who learn English through the internet?
Is it OK to learn General American Accent? Does a non-native speaker speak with a General American Accent sound ridiculous?
