Accent Breakdown and Short Transcript

As well as comprehension questions, our listening exercises also include questions whereby you have to work out the exact words that the speaker is saying. This is quite challenging in a strong accent spoken completely naturally and at full speed.    This helps English learners to really understand the differences between the regional accent and standard English.
Learn the key consonant features of each accent, and learn how you can identify them in listening.
See how the key features are applied in a short colour-coded transcript of a short section of the video. 
All explanations and transcripts clear, easy to follow and easy to understand.
