There are not many woman who could make Hermione (from Harry Potter) looks average, or make Daenerys (from Game of Thrones) looks like a potato. But Kate Beckinsale is one. Her classy movements, perfect English accent, warm smiles, fun personality, everything, can just make everyone lost just by talking to her: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2avOxIQr-vc

Is it just me, or Kate Beckinsale is just one of the most flawless human on Earth? I used not to believe in Vampires, but Kate is 43 and she is looking like 25. With some naughty pranksters from time to time, she is definitely the dream of human race. It not really only about the way she looks, but the way she talks. She can definitely finish one off just by talking. Her eloquence just makes her like a queen or an angel! Her speeches are just super eloquent that she must have come to the wrong century!

If I ever own a bakery, I’ll name it Kate Bake & Sale!

On Earth, there is no one better than Emam Watson.

In terms of acting, she is undoubtedly the best actress in the world, with her sweet smiles, cute voice, awesomely posh accent….With Emma Watson, there is no point for the same film having another actors/ actresses, because she can make the film good without any help.

Apart from her career, she is still a decent woman, always smiling to everyone, doing good deeds, helping to make the world a fairer place for everyone…. She is definitely a heroine, an angel, the saver of the world.

Everything she says is the words of wisdom; her good deeds are enough to make herself a goddess; she is just a legend!

Having learned English language for more than a decade, the problem of accent never came across my mind till I watched the British movie recommended by my dad, Melody (1971). Although I was only like 5 years old when I watched it, I found that the English that people spoke in the movie was amazingly harmonic, it was, as I thought, beyond the level of language, I would describe it as a tune. The tone, the syllables, the sound, the rhythm were all perfect. Since then, I developed my passion towards British accent, but I merely did anything to try to adapt to this accent, maybe I was too young. As I grew older, I seemed to forget how good it was, until I watched the movie Serendipity (2001), with the stunning British Actress Kate Beckinsale in it.

Kate Beckinsale, as I have noticed, has a clear London accent, which is practically similar to the BBC accent. Her voice also worked amazingly with this accent, Listening to her speech is like listening to a fine piece of tune, as every syllable is uttered crystal clear, and the tone is so fine-tuned that, it is like an innocent girl speaking. It is indeed nicer than the voice of a Nightingale. Her accent, combining with her nice acts in the movie, made her so perfect to me, and it confused me: does an accent make someone perfect? Not sure, but I think it would indeed affect the impression of the other people. Yes, it makes me think that she is perfect. Although she has already got a daughter Lily, her voice and accent still make her seem like a child. Some people call her a MILF (which I found a bit offensive); some would call her a fit bird. Yes, she is fit, but ‘bird’ does not seem to be good enough, I would describe her as a swan. Stacy’s Mom has got it going on? No, Lily’s mom has got it going on!

On the train from Manchester to Edinburgh after the table-tennis match, my companion Ben, and I met a girl from Nottingham. Having heard Scottish accent while studying in Scotland for so long, this girl reminded me of what the perfect accent (she got BBC Accent just like Kate Beckinsale) of English should be like, thus redeeming my passion about the sound of English. Yes, I will try to get rid of my original accent, and get myself with this BBC accent. What’s the point of studying a language? Practical use, YES, but it is also about your passion about the language. If you like a language, you would try your best to reach the highest level of the language. It is not simply to use, but to enjoy the language. It is similar to the difference between surviving and living. Hopefully, within 3 years, I would speak like some of the greatest British politicians in the UK, with the perfect BBC accent, and it will be part of my identity.
