Getting a British English accent is not as difficult as you might think.
I know that British English spelling does not always match the way we pronounce words, but there is a secret you can learn to make sure your pronunciation of any word is always correct.
That secret is phonetics.
Phonetic symbols are those strange symbols that you find next to the headwords in good dictionaries.
In the British English International Phonetic Alphabet, or IPA chart, there are 44 different symbols.
Each symbol represents one distinct sound in spoken British English.
When you first look at the British English IPA chart, it can seem daunting, to say the least.
“How can I ever remember all of those symbols?” you ask yourself.
It’s a question a lot of students have asked me, and it’s the reason I created the first eBook in my British English pronunciation course at SoundsBritish.com.
Using my eBook, you can quickly learn, remember and use all 44 of the British English IPA symbols.
Using the eBook, An Interactive British IPA Chart, and the new Practice Pack, you will soon be using the IPA symbols with the same confidence that you use the 26 letters of the alphabet.
While the letters of the alphabet don’t always match the sounds of the words in which they appear, the 44 IPA symbols always tell you exactly how to say a word.
This is what makes them such an essential part of the development of your spoken English.
By being able to confidently pronounce any English word correctly, your confidence will help you to develop your fluency and your vocabulary.
To give you a taste of what the eBook and the Practice Pack can do for you, I have created some sample pages of both that you can download free of charge.
These sample pages will let you check that the eBooks open and display as intended on your computer before you buy them.
You can buy the books separately, or you can buy them as a pack and enjoy a substantial discount on the price.
The eBook, An Interactive British IPA Chart, will introduce you to the 44 symbols and sounds of British English
The Practice Pack will give you hours of practice with over 2000 questions based on the book.
Together, these valuable resources will lay the foundations on which to build your perfect British English accent.
Whether you are a student or a teacher, you will quickly come to see how valuable a thorough mastery of the British English IPA symbols can be for you.
