I need to learn British dialects and I don't where to start from. I googled a lot and arrived here, I am unable to find any scripts with audio which is based on current British dialects (something like they speak in radio). I couldn't find any movies which has proper dialects which used in real life British English. Appreciate if some one could help me to find such materials to practice.

Do you pronounce opposite with a "s"? Or do you pronounce it as 'oppozite"? I think Americans pronounce it with an "s" while Brits do it with a "z". Right?

"Karaoke" is originated from Japanese. We, Japanese, pronounce it "Kah-rah-oh-keh." Do we have to pronounce it like "carry-oh-key" when we talk about karaoke with English-speaking people? If we pronounce it like "kah-rah-oh-keh," do English-speaking people understand what it is?

Hi, I'm looking for a good book for everyday English conversation, which is full of everyday contexts. I prefer a practical book with a CD, which includes how to buy a concert ticket, how to book a room at a hotel, how to transfer money to a bank account, how to use a credit card or how to ask the way to get somewhere. I know there are a lot of books on this, but I'm not sure which one is the best.

Why many foreign speakers have such problems with the English language? I mean, I came to the U.S. about two years ago, and in the beginning I've had problems with the language (probably just like eveybody else), but what makes English such a difficult language to learn? Most people (like in Europe) they grasp the [other] languages right away. The pronunciation is a lot easier, but still? What is so difficult about English? I know that there is stress, and that a lot of people shorten the vowels, but what makes English so hard? Thank You for taking Your time reading this

I know the correct pronunciation of sword. I also know that at least some blacks pronounce the w in it. (Mahalia Jackson certainly does in her marvellous rendition of the song Down By The Riverside.) As the word existed in Old English, it is highly likely that the w was commonly pronounced in those days. What I don't know is how common it actually is to pronounce the w today and whether this pronunciation is confined to African Americans only. Is the w pronounced in any American or British dialect spoken by white people as well? In New Zealand or Australia? What about former US or British colonies in which English isn't spoken by all, such as India or the Philippines, for example? Thank you for your replies. CB

How do you pronounce thirteenth? I was taking a practice test for IELTS and that's what I heard. The transcript says "With the last one on the fourteenth, oh no, on thirteenth." But the pronunciation of thirteenth and fourteenth is not nearly as intelligible to my non-native ears. the ee in them is not even pronounced. Is this the normal way you pronounce them?

I have completed English O levels ( equivalent to GCSE level in UK i think ). I find that my pronunciation is really terrible. Like I having been thinking Chile is pronounced as similar to "Child". Only recently I found it to be "Chi-ley". And the silent letters are quite troublesome. eg aisle,foriegn, champagne etc How can I try to perfect my pronunciation of words? Also, how can I try to polish up my grammer? Thank you. =)

http://picosong.com/ebYv/ Hello! Can you listen to little record of my speaking and a piece of reading to say couple words about pronuciation. Do I sound clear? And is my mother tongue obvious? : ) Thank you in advance! The paragraph I read: The appearance of our visitor was a surprise to me, since I had expected a typical country practitioner. He was a very tall, thin man, with a long nose like a beak, which jutted out between two keen, gray eyes, set closely together and sparkling brightly from behind a pair of gold-rimmed glasses. He was clad in a professional but rather slovenly fashion, for his frock-coat was dingy and his trousers frayed. Though young, his long back was already bowed, and he walked with a forward thrust of his head and a general air of peering benevolence. As he entered his eyes fell upon
