foreign accents

Hello to you, linguaphilies!

1 Which foreign accents in your native language sound most annoying to you?
And which are tolerable or even pleasant?

2. I've never been to any English-speaking country and, thinking about it, never communicated orally with a native English speaker.
So I've recorded myself reading a few sentences in English (the video is short really - 1.01 min). Would you watch it please and comment my accent? Does it sound unpleasant to you?
And can you tell from it what my native language is?

Please be polite but honest.
Thank you. )
