For many people, the British Engish accent, the Received Pronunciation or RP accent, also known as the BBC accent, is the most prestigious accent in English. It is seen as the accent of the powerful and influential, and those who speak with a standard British English accent will enjoy greater opportunities in all areas of their lives.
In order to achieve a genuine British English accent, you need to understand exactly how British English pronunciation works. You need to be able to distinguish the forty-four sounds of English as shown on the British English IPA chart.
The first forty-four Pronunciation Activation Packs in this series introduce the forty-four sounds and symbols of the British English IPA chart.
Once you have mastered the forty-four sounds of the British English IPA chart, you then need to go onto understand the fundamentals of pronunciation, such as the rhythm of English, function and content words, stress patterns, and linking features. All of these fundamentals will be covered in this comprehensive British English pronunciation course.
Once we have mastered the forty-four sounds and symbols of the British English IPA chart, and have a good understanding of the fundamentals of British English pronunciation, we will go on to look at the complexities of British English pronunciation, such as intonation.
