Accent Tools: The Kit List

WHAT IS IT? An accent workshop that focuses on how to understand the vowel sounds of any accent. HOW WILL IT WORK? Using methods from the Rowles and Sharpe ‘How to do Accents’ system you will learn how to use the kit list. The kit list is a group of words that represent the vowel sounds found in spoken English. Paying close attention to these words, you will learn about the vowels for any accent. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? The techniques will serve you for any accent you come across in the future. Price: £18.
