    Just came across these videos on YouTube on learning how to speak using a British accent with expert Tracey Goodwin. This videos are about 1:30 - 2 minutes long, so they won't take up too much of your time.

    How to speak with a British Accent:

    o1. AW Practise
    o2. EU Glide Practise
    o3. ARY Combination Practise
    o4. Uniquie Words
    o5. More Unique Words
    o6. Long O Practise
    o7. Short O Practise
    o8. R Drop Practise
    o9. Long E Practise

    There is probably around 30 - 40 of these videos all together but these ones have the most pronounciations of words in them.

    As some one who is British, I can say that this is absolute bollocks. This woman seemed to have learnt English from Charles Dickens, and I cannot stand Americans that try to attempt British accents because we're not all cockneys or victorian chimney sweepers.

    Britains - Are you annoyed by American's perception of the British accent?
    Americans - Do you really think we all speak like this? :|

    I like how she raises her head and blinks loads when doing the British accent... like it instantly makes you more intelligent and superior :lol:

    She also has a really weird mix of regional and posh accents in some of the videos.

    Or a mod that allows people to add their own without having to manually re-skin the meshes.

    Now, THIS is what I want to learn. American cursing is dead easy but mastering British cursing, especially the lower class cursing, I don't even know where to begin.
