Today we are going to look at the differences between British English and American English pronunciation.  Do you really want to sound more like James Bond, Benedict Cumberbatch,  and Daniel Craig than a mix of Bill Murray, President Obama, and Ben  Stiller? If you want to sound more British when you speak, rather than  American, then this podcast will share some secrets that will help you understand why we sound the way we do.

Learn What English Accent You Have As We Talk About The Differences Between British & American Accents

✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/practise-english-pronunciation-british-vs-american-accent/

Of  course, there are many wonderful British accents, and there are a lot  of lovely American accents as well. I’m going to give this lesson using  my accent. I would class my accent as contemporary received  pronunciation RP, which is just a way of saying I speak using an accent  you would hear in and around London and the South East of England.

My  accent is a clear and correctly spoken accent, so it’s a good place for  ESL (English as a second language) learners to start. It’s the sort of  accent you would want for your spoken English to be understood around  the world. If you want to sound Scottish or Welsh or Irish, or want one  of the many lovely regional accents to be found in the UK, then this  probably isn’t the lesson for you.

I know I say this a lot, but I think it’s important. Ultimately, having an accent when you speak English should not matter.  But accents, especially strong ones, can sometimes impede people  understanding what you say. As a new language learner, you probably  don’t want any additional barriers to being understood. You will  definitely adopt the accent from your English language teacher, and it  won’t be easy to correct later on. So knowing that should help you make a  more informed decision about what accent your language teacher has, and  whether that matters to you
