In an earlier video, I got a lesson from a dialect coach on how to speak with an authentic Londoner accent. Before we got to the lesson, she explained just how complex the accent landscape is in London and across the UK. Here’s the video.
As my coach, Sarah Shepherd said, it’s a real “bug barrier” or pet-peeve of the English when they hear people referring to an English accent thinking there is simply one accent. The fact of the matter is, there are hundreds of accents within London and throughout the UK that are quite diverse.
In this video, we try to shed some light on the subject. But like most complicated matters, I fear we’ve only scratched the surface. Do let me know what you think?
