FAQ

Received Pronunciation is defined by the Cambridge Dictionary as “the standard way in which middle-class speakers of southern British English pronounce words.” You can find out more about this accent by visiting¬†receivedpronunciation.com.

Which version of Received Pronunciation do you teach?

My courses focus on the modern form of Received Pronunciation. This is the accent that tends to be spoken by the top British actors on the international stage. You can find examples here.

What is shadowing?

Shadowing is a repetition exercise where non-native speakers mimic native speakers’ pronunciation and intonation patterns in real-time. By listening to and imitating native speakers immediately after they speak, learners develop better pronunciation, rhythm, and fluency in the target language.

Do you provide courses for native English speakers who wish to learn Received Pronunciation?

For native English speakers, I recommend Shadowing Exercises for Improved Fluency. This course introduces sentence structures which are more focused on natural rhythm of speech including tone and intonation rather than just the basic articulation of sounds. I am also currently in the process of creating an RP training course specifically tailored towards General American speakers.

The Basic Building Blocks of Speech is a course that I initially created as part of my Daily Training Program for my students. The purpose is to help non-native English speakers internalise the basic sounds of English prior to articulating words and sentences. Sounds are presented in their rawest forms by dissasociating them from words and meanings. The process is similar to how a baby learns to repeat sounds during early development.
