    Re: UK (Oxbridge) English accent improvement course?

    I would buy a book on English phonetics, and simply watch the BBC regularly and analytically as I made my way through it. We are all capable of improvement, so this should help. Also, if you speak Urdu, you may resemble some of my other students from that area: pay special attention to /v/ vs /w/, as well as the other usual difficulties such as /θ/.
