Accent Softening for Actors

Accent Softening for Actors

Accent Softening for Actors & Performers

Our Accent Softening for Actors course has been designed for non-native English speaking actors and performers who wish to develop and improve their British RP accent for performance.

The idea of portraying a Received Pronunciation accent for a part in an audition can be daunting for non-native English speakers. On our course you will work creatively and practically at mastering the basic characteristics of an RP accent and applying them to text.

Accent Softening for Actors Course Content

Exact course content may differ according to the course length and your needs but topics covered generally include:

  • Rigorous articulation exercises designed to strengthen your speech muscles; in order to achieve clear, flexible RP sounds more easily
  • A practical understanding of the placement and facial movements of the accent
  • A detailed breakdown of the sounds of RP; giving you a solid foundation of the tongue and mouth movement as well as sound length
  • Feedback on your speech and accent habits and techniques on how to improve your long-term goals
  • An understanding of how to apply this work to a script

Please bring a piece of text to this course. This could be anything from a poem, an excerpt from a novel or a monologue from a play. 

You'll receive continued and constructive feedback throughout the course.

Accent Softening for Actors tutors


All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
