Normally I would spend anywhere between 10 – 30 minutes doing some spoken English self-practice in order to get into my target English accent – be it American or British.
Today I decided to record a video on how I sound when I just start speaking with my target accent; basically I was willing to take the risk and sound way off my normal Received Pronunciation just so that you can hear that sometimes it’s not possible to speak the way you want without warming up your mouth!
The moment I started speaking, however, I realized that I’m doing quite OK. I didn’t have any difficulties with just SAYING things out loud without thinking too much about HOW to say this or that particular word, so by and large I was satisfied with the way my British accent practice session began.
I’ll let you be the judge of it, however, so you’re welcome to watch the video above to see how my British accent is going without any preparation at all!
