About this course
This course lays the foundation to make an expert out of any student. This is an instant all-access course, do it in your own time.
Settle in as I walk you through the characteristic sounds of the Standard British Accent including the pronunciation of different sounds, words, phrases, and full sentences.
Once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive six short and easy to follow video lessons conducted by me, Sarah Valentine, a professional accent coach. This 'do it yourself' accent course allows you to go at your pace and self direct your learning.
Once finished, you’ll be able to continue accessing the course so you can repeat it until you have the accent just right. This course will familiarise actors and voice actors with the basics of the Standard British Accent and even help those who simply want to sound more native.
Day 1. Introduction - We begin with familiarising yourself with my platform so you can get the most out of using the platform.
Day 2. The Valentine Method - You'll learn about the importance of phonetics and my special 'Valentine Method'.
Day 3. Creating a Spark - This is a wonderful tool that helps you to kick off your accent every time.
Day 4. Sounds Specific to the Accent - Learn about the specific sounds that make this accent so distinct.
Day 5. Rest Day - Take some time to go over your worksheets and embed the learning you've already covered,
Day 6. Words - Today you'll learn to ground the sounds you've just learned by practicing different words.
Day 7. Short Sentences - It's time to move on from sounds and start short sentences.
Day 8. Rest Day - Take another break and practice. There's no point rushing through without really perfecting your technique.
Day 9. Longer Sentences - This is when you're really going to put your accent to the test. Longer sentences will call on you to remember all the distinct sounds as you move through each word.
Day 10. Bonus Lesson - The British RP accent is known as the Queens English. It is not used much in society today but it does feature more frequently in movies and on television shows so it's worth taking a shot at it.
This course is fun and full of great learning for any actor wanting to sink their teeth into a new accent.

Working with Sarah is fantastic as she has a fun, friendly and professional approach, providing a helpful technique that breaks down learning an accent into steps that are easy to understand and practice.
Sarah's teaching is a wonderful blend of being clear and informative but also very warm and encouraging. It is a treat to learn from such an expert in her field who appreciates different learning styles. I would recommend this course for people who are confident at picking up new accents, but also those like myself for whom it is out of their comfort zone as Sarah makes it so straight-forward and un-intimidating.
Sarah was warm, friendly and bloody helpful in enabling me to get the hang of a Scottish accent. Her approach was simple to follow and I left knowing I had all I needed to do the job. I was also impressed with the range of other regional UK accents she is fluent in and thoroughly recommend her.
