ACTING WITH AN ACCENT–English Received Pronunciation

$15.95

The classic, “posh” English Received (PR) accent–for years considered the educated speech pattern of England.

Description

Learn the English RP (Received) Accent with 80 minutes of systematic audio lessons and an instruction/drill manual. It teaches the resonance, inflections, and pronunciation of RP–also known as “the King’s/Queen’s English,” “BBC English,” and “Posh.” For years this was the “upwardly mobile” accent of England. Though often called “Standard British” or “Standard British Southern,” it’s now being spoken by fewer and fewer residents of England. It is still, however, the speech pattern required for many period English comedies and dramas.
