Are you looking to improve your English pronunciation and speak with an authentic British accent?

Welcome to British English Pronunciation – The Complete Guide!

This course is perfect for English learners who want to achieve perfect English pronunciation.

The course is suitable for all levels of English pronunciation learners, from beginners to advanced.

Step 1: Phonemes

We’ll start from the beginning and teach you the correct mouth positions for English phonemes.

This way, you can learn how to say difficult words in a British accent with perfect English pronunciation.

For each vowel and consonant sound in English pronunciation, I’ll teach you: 

  • The correct mouth position

  • Spelling rules for that sound

  • Longer words to practice the English pronunciation for that sound

  • Listening practice so you can identify the sound easily from a British accent

  • Reading a passage together for extra practice of that sound

Summary: You’ll know exactly how to pronounce each sound correctly, and when to use them.

Step 2: English pronunciation improvement

We will see some common English pronunciation problems that people have and you’ll learn the correct skills to avoid those English pronunciation mistakes.

These include: 

  • Words that are difficult to say correctly – e.g. definitely; mischievous; stomach

  • Words that look the same but sound different (heteronyms) e.g. lead and lead; excuse and excuse

Summary: After this section, your English pronunciation will be so accurate that you’ll want to speak English all day!

Step 3: British accent training

We’ll learn the best ways to make your English pronunciation sound very natural with a British accent.

We will be learning the RP (Received Pronunciation) accent, which is considered the most ‘British’ and most correct accent.

It’s the accent that you’ve heard in movies like Harry Potter and shows like Downton Abbey and Bridgerton.

These British accent methods include:

  • End many words with schwa sound, not strong ‘r’ sound e.g. mother

  • Long ‘aaaah’ sound in words like ‘class, bath’ in British accent

  • Pronounce ‘tt’ as ‘tt’ (not ‘dd’ like Americans!)

  • Stewpid vs Stoopid – RP British accent uses ‘you’ sound

  • Pronounce the middle ‘r’ in words like ‘very’ as a ‘d’ (vedy good)

Summary: After this section, you’ll sound like you were born in the nice part of London!

Step 4: English pronunciation mastery

We’ll learn some high-level ways to make your English speaking even more natural sounding, by connecting your speech.

Connected speech is a great way to make your English pronunciation more authentic.

And we’ll practice passages together so you can be as confident as possible when using your new perfect English pronunciation! 

We’ll learn the following methods of making your English pronunciation more connected: 

  • Contractions

  • Gemination

  • Catenation

  • Assimilation

  • Intrusion

Summary: After this section, you’ll be able to say long passages fluently just as a native speaker would.

By the end of the course, you’ll have the tools you need to perfect your English pronunciation and speak with confidence like a native English speaker with a natural British accent.
