How To Perfect Your British Accent

As the proud owner of a new iPhone 4,  I’m quickly learning about the thousands of applications that are out in cloudland to download. There are apps for everything nowadays, including an app to help improve your English – the Queen’s English! That’s right, if you’ve ever dreamed of having a British accent, well now here’s your chance!

According to the Daily Mail, a British speech expert has developed an iPhone application which trains users how to speak “proper” English, or the Queen’s English, as they say in Britain. The application uses exercises similar to those Professor Henry Higgins set for Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, including the repetition of 15 different vowel sounds and 16 consonant sounds so that the user can practice pronunciation. You can even pause and practice your accent at any time and the audio meter shows you the intonation so that you can see if you’re pronouncing it properly.

Now honestly, who wouldn’t love to have a British accent, at least for a day? British accents are so sophisticated and dreamy. Beyond that, I imagine this app would be especially good for men who want to impress women, or vice versa, and expats who are desperately trying to fit in. Give it a try, could be a jolly good time! Now, repeat after me, In Hertford, Hereford and Hampshire

The British Accent application is available on iTunes for $4.99.
