Hi,
I am a non-native speaker. I am confused about the accent of the English of different countries. It varies and tough for me. Do you think accent really an issue at the time speaking?

I don't think accents are an issue unless you have a strong (deep) one. But one thing which must be correct is the phrasing of the words you use. For example don't go to the US expecting to get chip's (fries) because you'll end up withbaby a bag of crisps. The context of what you are saying must also be relevant to the area you're in (this includes slang).

Trust me, accents are only really a problem when listening, especially in the north of England. Us brits will be able to understand even very strong accents even if you are non native.

If you wan't to practise, I suggest joining an online multiplayer game and speaking to English people in Discord.
