British Accent tip!

Hi guys,

I am a Thai, but I've been studying British English a lots. There is some tips on the accent that I found on an website. And I hope this tip can help you understand how to speak whit a British accent as I do.

OK - first thing is 'r'. Don't pronounce 'r' unless its at the beginning of a word or between vowels. So 'bird', 'word', 'part' etc have no 'r' sound.

Secondly - short 'o' in words like 'box', 'top' etc is different. You have to cut it short and round your lips.
