Wonderful resource

It's a wonderful opportunity to hear RP being discussed by an English acting coach and an Irish actress. This is much more helpful than learning RP from an American teacher, no matter how well trained. The British discussion gives an insight you'll never get from listening to American discussions -- not just the How's of the accent, but lots of the Why's. For example, I had never heard that the reason the tongue stays low in the mouth for RP is that for many years English society held that it was vulgar for the tongue to be visible even during speech.

There is one unfortunate thing about this Audible release: they refer several times to the information in the "booklet that accompanies this disc" (including mentioning that the practice sentences can be found in the booklet), but, of course, there is no booklet available for the Audible version.

Not a training but...

What disappointed you about Access Accents?

This really isn't a training resource. Granted if you are careful enough and born British can pick-up few pointers to add one or two nuances to your range but, as I said it is not a training tape

What didn’t you like about Penny Dyer and Denise Gough ’s performance?

performance was fine, it just wasn't what it is advertised as

Theory over Practice

What would have made Access Accents better?

There should have been more examples of Received Pronunciation that gave readers the chance to practice it.

What could Gwyneth Strong and Penny Dyer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

They should have directed the book toward the listener.This was a recorded conversation of two academics talking to each other.

How could the performance have been better?

The participants should have considered the interests of the audience not their own.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really.

Any additional comments?

This audiobook is a waste of time for actors trying to become more adept at Received Pronunciation. Save your money

Very Practical

As advertised, this title is aimed at the preson who understands the basics of the RP already, and needs pointers on how to produce the sound naturally. It is extrememly useful for anyone who does not want to sound like some annoying spinster aunt, or Carol Burnett's stage RP. She's being hysterical; you want to sound as if you went to Oxford.

This audio recording is offensively bad.

This audio recording forces you to listen to a "lesson" in Received Pronunciation where the "student" is an actress with a strong native Irish accent. The "student" and "teacher" spend most of the time in a meandering chat that is NOT in Received Pronunciation. We then hear the actress improve her RP accent very slightly so that by the end of the recording she merely has a bad RP accent, as opposed to an outrageously bad RP accent. There are precisely give minutes of practice words, phrases, and sentences in good RP at the very end of the recording. This is an absolutely worthless recording and one that will not teach you anything useful.

Dissappointing

For something that cost $13.00, I expected this course to be more instructional and less opinionated. If it had cost $5.00 I'd have given it a 4, but as it is, it just won't do.

The interview playback was also a waste of time, and consider it was an hour program, I wanted it to be one hour of intensive instruction, but alas it is not to be.

Magnificent

This book is helpful for those interested in British RP and in phonetics in general, but don't think you can learn te accent with this book alone.The audible version doesn't give you sufficient theoretical basis. But if you've already got it, then the book will be comprehensive.

Awesome how-to!!

I liked how they introduced and taught the accent to someone trying to grasp the accent. The wide use of examples and tips have helped me understand my own errors.

Sehr schlecht, verlorene Geld und Zeit.

Würden Sie es noch mit einem anderen Hörbuch von Gwyneth Strong and Penny Dyer und/oder Penny Dyer and Denise Gough versuchen?

Leider habe ich es getan, Cockney Buch gekauft, ein bisschen besser. Wozu hoffnungslose "irre" gebabubble von Denis Gough, niemand kauf das Buch um Irisch Akzent zu lernen. Offensichtlich wird Denis nie im Leben RP zusammen kriegen.

Was hätte Gwyneth Strong and Penny Dyer anders machen müssen, damit Sie das Hörbuch mehr genossen hätten?

Alles

Wie hat der Erzähler das Buch beeinflusst?

Erzählerin hat 1A RP aber das ist einzige positive über diese Produkt.

Welche Figur würden Sie in Access Accents weglassen?

Denis Gough

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Was andere Kaufen zB. "Get rid of your Accent"
