    Hooray, I got rid of the Spanish accent
    Now I'm 70% American accent + 30% English (AKA British ) Accent

    For British accents, I found many funny things:
    http://www.wikihow.com/Speak-in-a-British-Accent

    Technically, any one of the many accents and dialects spoken in the British Isles - Technically. But only use it if you know and respect this fact. Never use "Britain" as a substitute for England in case you offend the Celts who will probably beat the crap out of you for your troubles (Being Welsh myself, I can pretty well guarantee it)

    It is not specifically "English Accent". If you want to say someone has an English Accent. Then it is common sensical to say "English Accent" as opposed to the potentially irritating generalization.

    Make no mistake. I, for one, and many others like me will not let you use the term "Britsh Accent" (OR British anything else where you actually should have said English)
    without some form of protest. Be it verbal or physical.
