Get to know your British accents in a minute and a half

Want to speak the Queen’s language? Know your London cockney from your Somerset drawl? Dialect coach Andrew Jack gives us the lowdown on accents of the British Isles and with astounding accuracy. Take a look as Jack’s voice changes ever so slightly with the movement around England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland, and Scotland. Being a dialect coach has seen Andrew Jack work with the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Pierce Brosnan, and even develop the Middle Earth accents for The Lord of The Rings.
