BBC World Service Pronunciation Resource

BBC World Service Pronunciation Tips

A very good resource to study from. I recommend it because you will hear a Standard English accent which is easily understood by yourself and by others when they hear you speak with it. http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/grammar/pron/ .

  • Start by watching the video 'Pronunciation Tips from bbclearningenglish.com' 
  • After you have introduced yourself to the resource, 'the sounds of English'  tab is a useful place to start. 
  • To take your learning further than the voiced, voiceless and other consonants previously introduced on this page.I would suggest that you start learning the single vowel sounds and then the dipthongs (double vowel sounds)last as they are trickier. 

  • Alternatively, you could revise the consonants first.
