00:10
Hello everyone and welcome back to English with  Lucy. Today, I've got a slightly different video  
00:16
for you. I'm going to show you lots of examples  of all different types of English accents  
00:23
and the different TV shows and films that  you can watch to hear these accents and  
00:30
if you want to learn these accents. I'm going  to show you examples of the British and Irish  
00:36
accents. So we've got English, Welsh, Scottish,  Northern Irish, and also the Irish accents and  
00:43
I'll give you lots of examples of films and TV  shows that contain these accents and dialects.  
00:49
We'll also look at the Americas, so we've got  the Canadian accents, the accents from the United  
00:54
States, and I will briefly touch on Caribbean  accents as well. We'll then move on to Australia  
01:01
and New Zealand accents and we will take a brief  look at some African and Asian accents as well.
01:10
Now, there are so many English accents and  dialects all across the world. It could be  
01:16
possible, but it would be a very, very long  video if I were to go into each and every one and  
01:22
provide a media example for them. So I've taken a  small selection of accents at a small selection of  
01:28
films and TV shows. If you'd like to add anything  to this list, if you want to show off your accent  
01:34
or you have some more recommendations for TV  shows for another accent, please do contribute  
01:40
in the comments section down below. As always  I have created a free PDF for today's lesson.  
01:44
It contains the full transcript and all of my  recommendations. If you'd like to download that,  
01:50
just click on the link in the description box, you  enter your name and your email address. You sign  
01:54
up to my mailing list and I send the PDF directly  to your inbox. And then every week after that,  
01:59
you automatically receive the free lesson PDFs,  as well as all my news, course info, and updates.
02:05
Quickly before we get started, I would just like  to thank the sponsor of today's video, NordVPN.  
02:11
And this sponsorship is incredibly relevant.  I always recommend watching English speaking  
02:16
TV shows and films as a language learning tool,  but it's so frustrating when you find something  
02:22
that you want to watch, it's been recommended  by your teacher and then it's not available in  
02:26
your country. I really enjoy watching Spanish  TV shows and it's so annoying and frustrating  
02:32
when I go to watch them and then they're  blocked in the UK. In this video, I will  
02:37
be recommending a lot of films and TV shows from  the UK and the US among other countries. And I  
02:43
know that the majority of you don't live in these  countries. We have a solution for this, NordVPN.
02:50
A VPN hides your location. This allows you to  improve your security, but most importantly,  
02:56
it allows you to overcome geographical  restrictions. So you can unlock access  
03:01
to lots of entertainment providers that are  limited to certain areas. NordVPN have given  
03:07
me a special offer and limited time offer to  pass onto you. If you go to nordvpn.com/lucy,  
03:15
you can get 70% of a two year deal plus a month  for free. This offer is going to end really soon,  
03:23
so don't delay. The link is in the description  box, nordvpn.com/lucy. And if you do not like the  
03:29
product, well, NordVPN offer a 30 day money back  guarantee so you can try the product risk-free.
03:36
Let's get started with my recommendations of  films and TV shows for different accents and  
03:40
dialects. Okay, let's talk about British and Irish  accents. Focusing on England first, we have the  
03:47
RP accent which is received pronunciation. Now  RP is often referred to as the Queen's English or  
03:55
the King's English, depending who's around at that  time. So of course, I'm going to recommend to you  
04:01
The Crown. The Crown is a Netflix drama that  covers the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. And  
04:07
in this series, we have some amazing examples of  the RP accent to varying degrees as well. Prince  
04:16
Charles in the latest season has a particularly  strong King's or Queen's English version of RP.
04:25
You're not what we expect from royalty.
04:27
Well, that's because I don't think of  myself as royalty. First and foremost,  
04:32
I'm a wife and a mother, that's  what's most important to me.
04:36
So very, very posh. Let's now take a look at  Estuary English. And my example for Estuary  
04:44
English is The Office. Make sure it's the UK one  though. You won't find much Estuary English in  
04:51
the US version. This accent is associated with the  area along the River Thames and its Estuary hence  
04:57
the name. To me, it sounds much less posh than the  RP accent. When I speak, I speak with a modern RP  
05:06
accent, but I do have elements of Estuary English  in that too. Now the Office is a fantastic  
05:13
comedy. It's actually a mockumentary, which means  it's a fake jokey documentary. It was written and  
05:20
directed by Ricky Gervais Stephen Merchant. It  follows the somewhat boring day-to-day lives  
05:26
of all the workers in an office in Slough,  which is a town about 20 miles west of London
05:34
On a more positive note, the good news  is I've been promoted. So every cloud.
05:45
We have all had a boss or coworker  like that. And if you haven't, then you  
05:49
are that boss or coworker. Moving on to  the Cockney accent, which I have to say  
05:56
is one... I do have many, but it is one  of my personal favourites. You can hear  
06:00
fantastic examples of the  Cockney accent in the TV comedy,  
06:05
Only Fools and Horses. It's quite old, but don't  be fooled, it's wonderful. It's set in Peckham  
06:12
in Southeast London and it follows two men, two  brothers and their attempts to get rich quick.
06:20
Think we're on a winner here, Trig.  Alright. Play it nice and cool, son.  
06:25
Nice and cool, you know what I mean.
06:29
Cockney is a dialect used in and around London,  especially in the east end. Right, let's move on  
06:36
to the west country. And the TV show that has  fantastic examples of the west country accent is  
06:43
This Country. This is quite a new TV show  and I devoured it. I absolutely loved it.  
06:50
It's another mockumentary sitcom and it follows  the day-to-day lives of two cousins. But I think  
06:56
in real life, they're actually brother and sister.  The Cotswolds is a beautiful area of outstanding  
07:02
natural beauty in the UK. It's characterised by  honey coloured stone buildings. It got a massive  
07:09
tourism trade. If I had to pick somewhere to live  in the UK, I would pick the Cotswolds. However,  
07:14
there's a big wealth gap and a lot of young people  that don't actually have many opportunities.
07:19
Few rules. No moaning, no  complaining, no negative Nazis.
07:23
Okay.
07:24
If you don't like the work, the circus is  intense and they're always looking for claims.
07:30
Right. Yeah.
07:30
Thirty minutes for lunch.
07:30
Right.
07:30
Any longer than that gets  taken out your wage packet.
07:31
Okay.
07:31
So although this is a comedy, it does actually  show how difficult a rural life can be for young  
07:36
people in the UK. It's something I relate to, to a  certain extent because I grew up in a tiny village  
07:42
and it was very small, very boring.  There was one bus per week. If you  
07:46
didn't drive or you didn't have parents  who were willing to drive you places,  
07:51
you just have to be bored. And bored  teenagers get up to very surprising things,  
07:57
surprising yet predictable. The West Country  accent is a rhotic accent and you can find it in  
08:03
Gloucestershire, all in the Cotswolds, but also  in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorsett as well.
08:09
Let's talk about the Geordie accent. To me, this  is one of the most unique British accents. The way  
08:16
it sounds is just so different. I love it. The  Geordie accent is typically found in Newcastle.  
08:22
I'm going to recommend a film that's based  in county Durham and the accents are kind of  
08:26
half Geordie, half Teesside. It is the most  fantastic film, we watched it the other day,  
08:31
again, probably the fourth time. It's about a  young working class boy. He's pressured by his  
08:37
family to do boxing and other manly sports, but he  actually wants to be a ballet dancer. All of this  
08:43
is going on during the miners' strikes in the  '80s. I love this film because it doesn't just  
08:47
paint England as being this wonderful happy place.  It shows the harsh reality of the '80s in the UK.
08:54
You know quite nicely.
08:58
What? What are you trying to say, Dad?
09:06
You're asking for a hiding, son.
09:07
No, I'm not, honest.
09:08
You are Billy. Billy.
09:10
I remember watching this film as a young girl  and wanting this accent. I felt so cross that  
09:15
I didn't have a cool accent like that.  Now let's move on to the Scouse accent.  
09:19
This accent is found in Liverpool. It's  named after a stew called Scouse. This  
09:25
was eaten by local people and sailors. I'm going  to recommend another slightly older film to you,  
09:31
but it's got a wonderful example of the Scouse  accent. It is Educating Rita. This film stars,  
09:37
Julie Walters and Michael Caine. And Rita is a  Liverpudlian hairdresser, but she just wants more  
09:44
from life. She wants to go and get an education,  but she's not from an area or family that really  
09:49
encouraged that. She ends up attending  university and Michael Caine is her tutor.
09:56
Wait a minute. Listen to me. I'm on this course,  
10:00
you are my tutor and you're  gonna bleeding well teach me.
10:03
There are other teachers I told you.
10:05
But you're my tutor. I don't want another tutor.
10:08
For God's sake woman, I told you.
10:09
But you're my tutor, look.
10:11
I told you, I do not want to do it.
10:13
It's such a great film. It's an absolute  classic. Let's move to Yorkshire. I have  
10:19
a fantastic recommendation for this accent,  these are some of my favourite films ever.  
10:24
For the Yorkshire accent, I recommend Wallace  and Gromit. And if you haven't heard of them,  
10:29
oh you are in for such a treat. These animations  are actually claymations meaning they're made out  
10:35
of some sort of moulding clay. They take years to  produce because every single movement needs to be  
10:41
captured, and they depict a man from Yorkshire  and his dog. Now you won't learn much English  
10:47
from the dog, but you will from Wallace the man.  They're just absolutely lovely. But in particular,  
10:52
I recommend their film. I think it was their  first feature film, if I'm not wrong there.  
10:57
It's called Wallace and Gromit  and the Curse of the Were-Rabbit.
11:00
Look. This flipping vegetable competition  causes nothing but trouble every year.
11:06
Here we go.
11:07
If you ask me...
11:08
Get on with you.
11:08
You know, I tell you. If  you ask me, this was arson.
11:13
Arson?
11:14
Aye, someone arsin around. That's  right, one of you lot. A man.
11:21
It's one of my favourites and basically  it depicts this small village that has a  
11:28
yearly giant vegetable competition, but  a giant were-rabbit, a massive rabbit  
11:34
goes through and destroys it. And it's a big  hullabaloo. Just watch it, it's fantastic.  
11:40
Let's move on to the Brummie accent. And of  course, I'm going to recommend Peaky Blinders.  
11:47
So the Brummie accent is the accent found  in and around Birmingham. This is a crime  
11:51
drama and it follows the story of a gang and  their criminal activities around Birmingham.
11:56
I had a dream about a black cat last night Poll.  
12:03
A black cat dream means there's a traitor  close by. It was you told me that.
12:09
If you find an accent hard to understand,  please do watch with subtitles. A couple of  
12:14
times you will be amazed how quickly you start  to get used to it. The last accent that I have  
12:20
for England is Multicultural London English,  MLE. Now this compared to the previous accents  
12:28
is actually quite new. It's rooted in the  migration from the Caribbean to the UK after  
12:34
the second World War. It's very prevalent, as the  name suggests, in multicultural parts of London,  
12:40
that is such a fantastic series that really  demonstrates this accent and that is Top Boy.  
12:47
Oh, my word, I loved this series. It's a crime  drama set on an estate in London. It follows lots  
12:54
of young people there and their struggles  balancing having an education with crime.
13:01
Listen, there's a lot of gangsters Randy's  ends and to find out what you're doing there,  
13:06
things [inaudible 00:13:12] like it. I'm  just parsing out some good advice, Dave.
13:12
I highly recommend this series. It also  shows some Jamaican English as well. Right,  
13:19
let's move on to Scotland. Obviously Scotland  is a lot smaller than England, but it still has  
13:25
a really, really diverse range of accents. One  series that I can recommend is Outlander and this  
13:32
is set in the Highlands. It's a very interesting  concept. A married former World War II nurse  
13:39
is transported back in time to 1743, I think. And  there she meets a very handsome Highland warrior.
13:49
Well, it is your fault. Had you stayed put where  I ordered you to stay, none of this would have  
13:53
happened. Ah, but no. No, you won't listen to me.  Why mind me? I am no but your husband. If you take  
13:59
it into your mind to do as you damn please, and  next I can find you flat on your back with your  
14:02
skirts up and the worst scum of the land between  your legs about to take you before my very eyes.
14:07
I begged you to take me with you.
14:08
A Highland dialect is strongly influenced by  Gaelic. There is a wide variety of accents  
14:15
within this series. There's a fantastic  video that I found talking about all of  
14:20
these accents. So if you are interested in  Outlander and also the variety of accents,  
14:24
then click on the link in the description box I've  left there for you. I've left lots of information  
14:29
about everything I'm recommending. I'm not a  Scottish accent expert, but we've got one here  
14:35
and she can do a much better job. I do have one  other recommendation for Scottish accents though,  
14:42
and this is for the Glasswegian accent.  It's a TV show which sadly got cancelled,  
14:47
but it's worth watching the first two  series, it's called Lip Service. I  
14:52
loved this TV show when I was younger. It  follows a group of queer women in Glasgow.
14:59
I was bang out of order, I'm sorry. I  have been selfish and thoughtless. And  
15:03
I know how difficult your job must be or maybe I  don't. Obviously, I have no idea because you just  
15:08
get on with it while I moan about everything.  And you're right, nobody died. It's no big...
15:13
Cat...
15:13
I just wanted to apologise. You were  absolutely right, I deserved it.
15:17
And this was the first TV show for me that  followed a group of gay women. I'd never seen  
15:21
anything like that before and it was fascinating  and it's really, really worth a watch. Let's move  
15:26
on to Wales. I have one recommendation for  Welsh TV shows and that is Gavin and Stacey.  
15:33
It's half based in south Wales and half based in  Essex. In Essex, they speak Estuary English and  
15:38
also a lot of Cockney because a lot of the  Cockney speakers who lived in the east end  
15:43
have moved out to Essex. This depicts the  love story between a Welsh girl and Essex lad.
15:50
He then sells them around the back  alleys. He's been doing it for years.  
15:54
It's totally legit. And the thing is it's  incredible value. These steaks are 87 pence.
16:00
Right he's good, 87 pence for a steak.
16:03
No, no. Not 87 pence each, 87 pence for free.
16:07
Even though geographically Essex and south Wales  aren't so far apart. Culturally, they can be  
16:14
quite different so it's really funny look at the  differences between the two types of families. We  
16:19
always watch it on Christmas day and I absolutely  love Gavin and Stacey on Christmas day. Let's move  
16:26
on to Northern Ireland. I love... I know I've said  I've loved so many accents, but the Northern Irish  
16:32
accent for me is really, really attractive. There  is a fantastic comedy set in Derry in Northern  
16:40
Ireland called Derry Girls. Follows a group  of young girls in the 1990s when the troubles  
16:46
were going on in Northern Ireland. This was a long  period of conflict between the '60s and the '90s.
16:53
John's really dying for peace, like,  isn't he? It's all he ever goes on about.  
16:58
I hope it works out for him.
16:59
Aye, I sort of hope it works  out for all of us, Sarah.
17:02
Totally recommend. It's so funny. And those women  are just hilarious. They're so funny in real life  
17:08
and in the comedy. I have one other recommendation  for the Northern Irish accent and this TV show,  
17:14
it's not based in Northern Ireland. There's only  one character who's Northern Irish, I think. Yeah,  
17:20
just one, I think. It's actually got a really wide  variety of accents in it and it is my favourite TV  
17:25
show at the moment it's called Line of Duty.  If you take anything away from this video,  
17:31
take Line of Duty. It's so, so good. It is  smashing the ratings in the UK at the moment.
17:37
No, no we're not asking for a  suspension at this particular time.  
17:40
We don't think he's a threat to his fellow  officers or indeed the public in general.  
17:43
Now why should the citizens of this country be  denied his selfless service? Interview terminated.
17:50
My favourite character in this TV show is Ted  Hastings played by Adrian Dunbar who has the most  
17:59
gorgeous Northern Irish accent and he says so many  hilarious catch phrases. This is a crime drama.  
18:06
It's quite serious. It's definitely not a comedy.  And it follows the anti-corruption unit of a  
18:13
fictional UK city of a fictional UK police force.  One thing I really love about this show is that  
18:21
each season only has six episodes. My pet hate  is when each season has 21 episodes and I think  
18:28
that all an hour long I'm going to have to spend  an entire 21 hours in front of the TV to know what  
18:34
happened. Let's move on to Ireland. There are so  many accents and dialects in Ireland. I'm going to  
18:41
pick one that I really, really liked one TV show,  and that is Moone Boy. It stars Chris O'Dowd and  
18:47
it's semi-autobiographical. It focuses on a young  boy growing up in Boyle and his imaginary friends.
18:54
Ever wanted to be the imaginary friend  of an idiot boy in the west of Ireland?  
18:59
Me neither. But there you go.
19:01
Right. We're done with the UK and Ireland.  Let's move on to the Americas, starting with  
19:06
Canada. For TV show with a Canadian accent, I  recommend Heartland which is based in Alberta  
19:12
and it follows two sisters on their  family ranch. So if you like horses,  
19:16
this TV show is for you. It really is lovely.
19:20
Oh, they look good for now,  I had to get going, so.
19:22
Wait, I thought you said you're going to help me.
19:24
Well, I am. I mean, I did.  I can't be here 24/7 Amy.
19:28
No one's expecting you to be.
19:30
Moving it to the US. We have a great TV  show to watch if you're interested in  
19:36
Southern American accents, the TV series,  Nashville, which is based in Nashville, Tennessee,  
19:43
and it follows the fictitious lives  of a group of country singers.  
19:48
I warn you that TV show is very addictive  and it will have you listening to lots of  
19:52
country music. And I don't think I've ever lost  that. I still listen to country music in my car.
19:57
All of you out there who want me to beg for  forgiveness. Who want to burn my records  
20:03
and cancel my concerts. Who want to put my  career in the garage. This one's for you.
20:11
An accent that you will hear a lot  is the Californian accent because  
20:15
so many TV shows and films are based in LA. One  film that I highly recommend is Clueless. This  
20:23
follows a teenage girl, a very rich and popular  teenage girl. She befriends a new student and  
20:29
attempts to give her a makeover. That  was one of my favourite childhood film.
20:34
So?
20:35
The shopping with Dr. Seuss?
20:37
But at least I wouldn't skin a Collie to make  my backpack. So, hello, there was a stop sign.
20:43
I totally pause.
20:46
Yeah, okay.
20:47
Lastly, we have African  American Vernacular English.  
20:50
For this variety of English I highly  recommend Empire. This series focuses  
20:55
on Empire entertainment. It's a fictional  hip hop music and entertainment company. It  
21:01
depicts the founders and their families and  all of the drama as well. It's excellent.
21:05
Sweetheart, it's what he does. It took  me half my life to understand that  
21:13
I'm saving you from a bullet,  Yana. You should thank me.
21:18
Lastly, I'm going to briefly touch on Caribbean  accents. I've mentioned Top Boy before they have  
21:23
some fantastic examples of the Jamaican  dialect, the Jamaican English accent.
21:28
Would have thought in a bit?
21:30
I would thought of [Ilman 00:21:36].
21:32
You feel like safe buy item on  from Sugar [inaudible 00:21:39],  
21:34
please, we'll have another one.  Which buyer could have poison one?
21:37
With Donovan.
21:38
I've also found a really good video depicting  quite a few of the Caribbean accents. I will link  
21:43
that down below because it's really, really  interesting to hear the differences because  
21:47
they are so different from one another. Let's  move on to Australia and New Zealand. Starting  
21:52
with Australia, I have one recommendation,  but it does contain a variety of accents.  
21:57
It is Underbelly. This is a fantastic crime  drama. Well, it's actually a real life crime  
22:02
drama. There are lots of series and each series  is based on a real life event. The series is  
22:08
sort of based in different areas as Melbourne,  Sydney and New south Wales that I can remember.
22:12
These emergency numbers are dead.
22:15
You know why? Cause they knew which I dial.
22:19
Okay. Hey, there's got to be like  a Melbourne bus, right? Or a train?
22:26
No, they'll kill us if we leave.
22:27
Our phone is going to kill us if we stay here.
22:30
For New Zealand, I really recommend a film I  watched this last year with Will because Will,  
22:35
my fiance, lived in New Zealand for a while. The  film is called Once Were Warriors. It tells the  
22:41
story of an urban Maori family. It shows their  problems such as alcoholism, domestic violence.  
22:47
It's a hard watch. It's not a comforting happy  story, but it's an amazing one or the same.
22:56
Ms. H, could you read me one of G's stories? I  can't that's why she reads to me. I mean used to.
23:01
Yeah, the one about the Taniwha.
23:03
Okay.
23:03
I love films that show real life and I  think Once Were Warriors is a fantastic  
23:08
example of that. Let's move  now to Africa, in particular,  
23:11
South Africa. Now English is not the  number one spoken language in South Africa,  
23:17
but they have a very distinctive accent. The film  I'm going to recommend to you is Nelson Mandela,  
23:23
Long Walk to Freedom. It stars Idris Elba and  Naomie Harris, and they do a fantastic job.  
23:28
And this film is based on Nelson Mandela's  autobiography Long Walk to Freedom.
23:34
It is an ideal which I hope  to live for and achieve.  
23:40
But if needs be, it is an ideal  for which I am prepared to die.
23:49
It's such a moving watch. I watched it a while  back, but actually I've just added it to my list  
23:53
of things I want to do this weekend. I just  need to watch this film again. Now there are  
23:57
so many different accents in the continent of  Africa. I cannot claim to be an expert on them,  
24:03
but I did find a really lovely video of two  girls. It's quite short, comparing their accents,  
24:08
Nigerian English and Ghanaian English. Again,  I have linked that down below. Finally,  
24:12
let's touch on Asia. I have got two films here  and both of them, I just love. One is probably  
24:20
my top films of all time. And that is Slumdog  Millionaire. This follows a little boy growing up  
24:26
in the slums of Mumbai and he grows up to an adult  to 18 and he ends up winning the Indian version  
24:32
of Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, and it's a  story of how he did it. It's absolutely amazing.
24:38
Good evening [foreign language 00:24:45].  Welcome to Who Wants to be Millionaire?
24:48
Are you ready?
24:50
Mm-hmm (affirmative).
24:53
Please give a big round of applause...
24:55
Good luck.
24:55
... to our very first contestant of the night,  Jamal Malik, from our very own Aamchi Mumbai.
25:05
My other recommendation is Bride and Prejudice.  And this is based on the story of pride and  
25:11
prejudice. Two parents want to marry off  their daughters as quickly as possible  
25:15
and as successfully as possible, but  one daughter wants to choose her husband  
25:19
and she ends up meeting an American  man and it doesn't all go to plan.
25:24
I really like this place. It's not at  all where I expected you to take me.
25:28
Uh-huh (affirmative), you see.  I told you, you misjudged me.
25:32
The band is great.
25:35
I want you to show them how it's done.
25:36
No, no, no, no, no, no.
25:38
No, I guess your guitar playing can't  really compare to your sister's snake dance.
25:42
It's a wonderful musical comedy and I  highly recommend it. Right. That is it for  
25:46
my recommendations. Do you think I missed any?  Yes I did. I can already say that. As I said,  
25:52
I've got loads of links in the description  box showing you lots of examples of different  
25:56
accents. Please let me know in the comments  section, if you have any other recommendations,  
26:01
maybe I've missed your accent and you can think  of a really good example in TV or in film.

27:14
I will see you soon for another lesson. I've  tried a new hairstyle and I don't like it. So it's  
27:20
going back next time. I heard on TikTok that side  partings are going out of fashion. So I panicked.  
27:28
I feel really weird with it though because it's  not what I'm used to. That's a no for me. Sorry,  
27:35
I'll never do this hair style again. I really  enjoying. Which is a town outside of London.  
27:41
It's actually in Berkshire. [inaudible 00:27:48].  In this video. This is a grime. Well, I can't say  
27:53
that, I know I sound that sort of [inaudible  00:28:00] one. I... The lives of a group of  
27:59
clear women... queer women. I loved this TV show  as a child. Was I too young to watch, I felt like  
28:06
I hid it from my mom that was watching it. Now  I've made my hair greasy. This is a nightmare.  
28:29
Okay.
