French 'attracted to English accent'

Speaking accented French is considered attractive by 39% of respondents in a new poll

FRENCH people consider the English accent to be the most attractive - while the rest of the world considers the French language to be the most seductive, a new study has found.

The poll of 14,000 people worldwide who use the language learning app Babbel puts French at the top with 34% of the vote, followed by Italian and Spanish. French was also the most attractive accent when speaking another language.

However, for the French people who were surveyed, the language of love was Italian and the most attractive accent to hear someone speaking French was the English one, taking 39% of the vote.

Nearly 95% of respondents worldwide said they would be ready to learn a new language for a relationship.
