London English…from Cockneys to Jafaicans

London English…from Cockneys to Jafaicans

If you thought Standard English was difficult, you might like to try your hand at the latest London English dialect, ‘Jafaican’, or to give it its more academic sounding title, Multicultural London English ( MLE). This dialect is now quite embedded and widespread in Inner London, mostly among young people. It has been strongly influenced by Jamaican but with undertones of West African and Indian thrown in..

Get the rhythm of English

Get the rhythm of English

One way of getting familiar with the rhythm of English is by reading, and perhaps more importantly, reciting poetry. You might even be able to quote extracts and impress all those around you! Don't worry if you don't understand all the words. Feeling is more important than meaning here. This will make you more comfortable with the rhythm of English, where words don't carry equal stress. It's a way into English culture and will give you a better understanding of language at its best. You can make yourself a folder with 'My favourite poems' and practise reading them aloud in your free time!
