In this video, I'll show you how to speak modern/contemporary RP and I'll give you lots of secrets so that you you can speak this up-to-date British accent.
This is really the third in my series of how to speak RP and posh English.
Check out the videos mentioned in this video so that you can catch up on and compare the other versions of RP. Links below.

And finally, check my video on Estuary English here-
So, in the video I'll give you not only secrets, but also a controversy - that is to say - should we or shouldn't we use this technique. Watch the video to find out what it is. Or can you guess?!
Now, in some places the video is a little technical with lots of phonemic symbols for the vowel and consonant sounds (it's the best way to show sounds), but if you not good with these symbols then just listen to me and then try and say the sounds yourself. I hope that the video also shows you how sounds have changed from conservative RP (like posh people used to speak) to contemporary RP (like we speak it today). Start speaking this accent and you'll surely sound like a (posh) Londoner.
Thanks and stay connected!
