Accents in Chinese

I asked my daughter how a friend of hers Chinese was. She said it was OK, but her friend thinks my daughter has an accent. My daughter's comment was her friend has the wrong accent.

So both are in high school in the US, what's the missing info. My daughter's family is from Shanghai, where my daughter's Mother is from Taiwan. Chinese does have accents, the standard accent in China is called a Beijing accent. The Taiwan accent is a little bit softer. Both understand each other fine, and the Taiwan accent last I checked is seen as a little bit more stylish because of pop singers.
