American English with the occasional canadian words (like chesterfield) thrown in. Apart from regional dialects (like the south, boston, etc. etc.) I don't personally believe there is a difference in the way canadians/americans talk.

english english at school and american english at home/with friends has led me to adopt a subtle blend of the two englishes.

i pronounce more than half the world the british way though....i pronounce 'privacy', 'privicy' for example

But, the ultimate test, do you say 'maul' or 'mal' for 'mall'? (I know skipfulls of English people who don't pronounce this the English way)

If you look in a dictionary with British phonics it will tell you 'mal' (like when the French say 'pas mal' - 'not bad'), but lots of people have adopted the American pronuncification...

I speak American english but I think it's ugly... In France, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, and England I hate to open my mouth because my accent sounds so dull compared to theirs!

In Germany and Ireland it is not as bad because their accents are not quite as graceful, but they still sound much nicer than me.

I speak California-American English which I think is more graceful than the accents that Northeasterners have.
