UK: Northern Irish Accents (from Donegal to Down)

5 Classes



About the Course

This course will guide you through the process of learning the REAL accents of the northern quarter of the island of Ireland with a focus on the Mid-Ulster variety. You'll learn not only all the lexical sets and where they are placed in the mouth, we'll also cover the complex regional and socio-economic differences, and all within the context of culture.

If you're sick of watching amateurs on YouTube try to explain how they do their dodgy Liam Neeson accent, this is the course for you!
