Most of us probably think that the New Zealand accent is pretty gross, and harsh - so it will probably come as a shock to find out that the Kiwi accent is pretty popular with foreigners.
Big 7 Travel polled their readers from all across the globe to find the world’s sexiest accent for 2019 in order to entice their audience to travel more, and boy are we happy with the results.
With nearly 7,000 languages in the world, it's pretty flattering, especially beating out classically romantic accents like Italian and Spanish.
Here's the Top 50 list:
44th. New York
12th. Queen’s English
10th. Brazilian Portuguese
9th. U.S Southern
2nd. South African
According to the website "To a novice ear, the New Zealand accent might sound just like the Australian accent, but Big 7 Travel readers disagree. The ‘Newzild’ dialect is outrageously charming. The sexiest accent in the world? It’s official."
Surprised?! So are we!
