January 31–February 25, 2022

A 4-week course of interactive workshops, each one focusing practice on one English accent throughout the month and lasting about an hour each week. You can take up to 3 each week (1 per day).

 

They start at 2PM Pacific / 5PM Eastern / 11AM (next day) New Zealand.

 

Estuary Mondays: a much-heard accent of the southeast regions.

 

Northern English Wednesdays: accents from Manchester to Northumberland

 

RP Fridays: an accent also commonly known as BBC English. Learn how to sound like British establishment

 

Each week works like this:

Week 1: Behold the building blocks: bring out the drills and break new ground with the sounds

I go through the word types with their sounds using a list of words that will turn up in the scenet you’ll be given to practice as homework for Week 2

 

Week 2: Lay the foundations

Scaffolding with that script, we’ll create a punch list… a list of sounds you’ll need to focus on improving for Week 3

Week 3: Seen on Site
You’ll exercise the accent by doing a cold read from an online text you’ve never seen before.

You’ll then have a week in which to practice the accent or accents in every possible situation before

 

Week 4: Take ownership and move in
We'll have a group conversation in your new accent!

I am very excited because I do already have some very dear Talklikethat frequent fliers signed up, and I do want to keep the classes small, so please don’t hesitate if you don’t want to miss out.

 

However, if you’re thinking, “Maybe I’ll do this next time,” looking at my calendar, I’m not sure when I’ll have time to run this course again this year, so be kind to yourself and take this opportunity.
