Publisher's Summary

Get Rid of Your Accent is a speech training manual for mastering British-English pronunciation. The audiobook is based on a tried and trusted method, used in London drama schools, that helps British people with provincial accents learn standard British English. This audiobook helps with clarity of speech. If you are not sure how to pronounce particular English sounds, it will lead to unintelligible speech. We deal with all RP (received pronunciation) English sounds in this speech training manual, which will help you sound educated. It includes humorous sentences, tongue twisters, period verses, and rhyme exercises. Relevant subjects are received pronunciation, elocution, and phonetics. It is recorded by professional actors, and the quality of speech is outstanding.

Get rid of your Accent, vol. 1

This is a great audio book. The narrators are quite good, and the lessons proceed smoothly. Lots of practice works, sentences, and limericks to reinforce. I have been wanting to practice my British accent, and this works well as one of my tools. I listen to ten minute intervals each night, then watch segments of Doc Martin, House of Cards (British), and Parliament.UK to get more immersion. Lots of fun.

The best book ever!

I was looking for exercises to work on the RP pronunciation, and they are nowhere to find on the internet, I bought this book accidentally, and glad I did, I bought all four shortly after and looking forward on listening to them and practice; Nothing but respect for everyone who worked on this book, thank you!

Not great

Pronunciation is great but you cant do any practising with this audio book, it does not give you enough time to repeat anything at all and its impractical to keep pausing and rewinding it. Also it does not give you any instructions at all how to use the book, how it was intended to be used.

not useful for me

Stuggled to finish. I can't memorize anything. Maybe it's not right for me. I am going to find another one.
