Watch British Council seminar: 'The power of accents in the 21st century'

British CouncilThe British Council's latest seminar recording is now available to watch on the EnglishAgenda website. In 2013 Britain, the clipped vowels of the ‘Queen’s English’ may no longer rule the radio waves (in fact, even the Queen herself has brought her accent up to date) but accents still shape the ways we think about other people and ourselves. What are the current attitudes shaping our linguistic landscape?

Accent & Dialect coaches and authors of Collins’ 'Work on Your Accent', Sarah Shepherd and Helen Ashton give you the chance to learn some of the techniques they use to help actors change their accent for a role; and show you that the course of your life can be shaped not only by the way that you speak, but also by the way that you listen.

Watch the seminar recording on the British Council website.
