There are so many varieties of British accents from across the UK – in this video we’ll be focusing on Modern Received Pronunciation (RP), sometimes also known as “Standard Southern British English” / SSBE. If you want to learn a different variety of British English, there are some fantastic videos on how to do those so I’d recommend you check one of those out!

  1. This is the best and most comprehensive RP accent video I've watched. Thank you, Izzy. If you ever make a RP pronunciation course, I will buy it!

  2. 3:44 it sounded more like New York accent πŸ˜„ which is just-well if I'm not mistaken, it was constituent of British Immigrants (I believe in generally 1600s) – that's why NY accent sounds kind of British or "Americanized British" πŸ˜…

  3. I'm from sri lanka.. I finded you today. So I'm glad that… I learn lot of things. Thanks thank a lot teacher.. πŸ‡±πŸ‡°

  4. Your video is great, your voice is very natural, thank you very much .Where are you from? and you are studying at Cambridge university right?

  5. Just because you have a very good accent doesn't mean you speak very good English. As long as we understand each other, why worry about your accent.

  6. This is really amazing… I never learned how to differentiate British Vs American accent before watching this video.
