Abstract: This study is a quantitative study that investigates Indonesian EFL students' attitudes toward various accents, which are British English (BE), American English (AE), Malaysian English (ME), Indian English (IE), and Japanese English (JE). Particularly, the study explains three concerns about: Indonesian EFL students' attitude toward various English accents; opinions about the importance of using native accent(s); opinions about own accent. Questionnaires written in Bahasa Indonesia were distributed to 100 students of English Department Satya Wacana Christian University Salatiga. The results show that native accents receive more positive attitudes, and non-native accents receive more negative attitudes; nevertheless; more than half participants state that using native accent(s) is not important; and; most of participants claimed their accent is non native, but they have positive opinions toward their accent, and positive feelings when they use their accent
