'Room' for Improvement with your British Accent?


Rooms In The Home British Accent Vocab Practice

Could there be a little room for improvement with your British Accent speaking skills?


There are many opportunities for you to be talking about different rooms in the home and the different objects you may find in them.  If you're anything like me then talking about houses and interiors is a VERY popular topic!

You may be in conversation about a recent improvement you've made to your own home, you may be chatting to an Estate agent about a potential new property, or you may be discussing one of the houses you saw on the numerous property show we have on TV!

Whatever the situation, it can help to know how to pronounce the rooms in the home and their furniture correctly.  Use these video clips to help you improve your English as well as your RP British Accent.

Here is a sample video for you to watch now:  if you like it visit the Rooms In The Home post to watch the complete set of video clips

English Speaking Skills : Pronouncing First Names




It's a rare conversation that doesn't require the use of someone's first name.  Even if you start a conversation more formally with a Mr or Mrs, its often the case where the respondent replies with their first name.
Addressing a person by their first name immediately creates a feeling of intimacy and familiarity so its important to get the pronunciation of the name correct.

If you've ever wondered about the correct RP British Accent pronunciation of some of the UK's most popular male and female first names than this is the post for you!

A selection of VIDEOS and AUDIO clips to help you practice your pronunciation of First names can be found here .

Repeat After Me ..... Repeating Rhyming Words



  • Repetition is the key to mastering the British Accent.  
  • Through repeating a sound, word or phrase you are giving it the opportunity to lodge itself into your muscle memory.
  • Once in your muscle memory, the sound/word/phrase can be produced more naturally and automatically.

 Rhyming words are a useful way to practice and repeat particular sounds.
