About this course
This course lays the foundation to make a British RP expert out of any student.
Settle in as Sarah walks you through the characteristic sounds of British RP 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 Sarah Valentine, a professional accent coach. Complete the challenge within the ten days and you’ll get personal feedback on the self-tapes you submit after each lesson from Sarah herself.
Couldn’t do it in ten days? Don’t worry, you’ll continue to have access to 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 British RP and even help those who simply want to sound more native.
Day 1. We begin with familiarising yourself with Ruzuku and using the website to get the most out of it.
Day 2. Straight into sounds to practice, these are listen and repeat exercises with homework for each section.
Day 3. Moving onto words to practice continuing with repeat exercises and homework.
Day 4. Catch up day - here you can go over the last 3 days and get all homework completed and watch over the videos ready for day 5.

Day 6. Sentences to practise - here we really get into the nitty-gritty. Time to get those words sounding really good
Day 7. Catch up day for homework.
Day 8. Monologue day - this is the big one. Hopefully, you have learned your script (given to you on day 1) now it’s time to layer that accent on top.
Day 9. Shoot and Edit your monologue and a little surprise!
Day 10. Upload that video! Get it done. Feedback from me on your work. I will go through your monologue and give you feedback on where you need to do work or tell you how great you are going.

I worked one to one with Sarah who went over and above with her attention to detail. I would recommend her wholeheartedly for UK accents. - Sara Wiseman
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. - Mathew Chamberlain.
Sarah is awesome at her craft, as usual. This was the third course I’ve participated in. Her videos are amazing and are an outstanding method for hearing and, in particular, viewing the spoken accent. I’ve learned so much from this course — now I’m ready to apply my lessons when needed. Good job Sarah — well done, teacher! - Tobi
