    Smile Re: uk accent

    Hi there! I am not a teacher.

    I suggest you can download some audio files about BBC news from BBC website (www.bbc.co.uk), and then read aloud after newscasters time and again, imitate their tone until you are sure your pronunciation is close to them.

    Hope this helps.

    UK has more accents than they know what to do with. Scottish, Welsh, Cockney. You probably should try RP, or BBC English, first as daffodils advises.
