R&R 26: Northern accent – Xmas day traditions

Real & Relevant Podcast 26 Natural English Conversation between English teachers

Paul joins the pod today. He is the owner of an SGI sister school, The British Centre in San Sebastian, Spain. He is also a very experienced English teacher that has successfully put hundreds of students through the Cambridge FCE exam.

Paul comes from the Lake District region in the north of England, so you will notice that his northern accent is very different to Melissa’s received pronunciation accent for instance. But Paul is a native speaker, of course which means that his English is as valuable as anyone else’s. To improve your English listening skills, you should listen to as many different accents as possible.

Don’t forget to enter our easy Xmas competition with a chance to win a week of free English lessons at SGI London in 2013.
Also, remember that until Dec 21st, as an early Xmas present celebrating 50 years of SGI, you can get a 25% discount on any SGI course in London during 2013. Click here for 25% discount details.
