What do you think is more important? speak fluent English or have a very good English accent?
I know both are important, but it is rare for the young pupils or the beginners to manage both.
See you soon.

yes both are important,
but I think that it's more important to speak english fluently,because in my opinion to have an accent could be charming...! no?

I would think that it is more important to be able to communicate and make yourself understood than what accent you have. If you're learning English which accent would you like to have ? - an American accent, an Australian one and if English would you prefer a Liverpudlian, Brum, black country, Yorkshire, London or ....... I could go on. Far better to be able to speak the language and be understood.

Thanks for your answers. I considered that speaking fluently is more important than the accent. But I wanted to get some opinions and you are welcome for that.
As for me it is not very important because I know my accent is quite British, people tell me so and don't believe I'm French; but my pupils have some difficulties with that. On the other hand some of them get at once a marvellous accent. My daughter went to Australia 2 years ago and she can speak fluent English but she still has a French accent which is charming she told me ! of course you can change your accent, even in France according to the area you live in.
Bye

To be fluent or to have a good English accent may not be the most important things, I think. What is essential is to be able to PRONOUNCE English words PROPERLY if you want to make yourself understood. Speaking English fluently is pointless if your pronunciation is faulty. As for the accent, it is the icing on the cake (as the saying goes).It's great if people acquire it but you needn't give top priority to it first. Don't you agree ?
Bye

yes that's right freeday; when I say "accent" in fact I speak of everything concerning the pronunciation; the pupils have to learn each word, one by one, and when they try to build up a sentence the result may be good or quite awful. They are like babies who learn a language ! I insist on the "h" on the "th" and they have to repeat and repeat hundreds of times. But they like it, and they are very proud when they can say a sentence by their own. Especially when I understand what they say because if they make a mistake I pretend not to understand them.
Thank you very much for your answers.
