How To Say: The Dark ‘L’ Sound

In the lesson above, Matt takes you through the Dark ‘L’ sound, a crucial component of the RP sound set.

Learning the British Accent can be surprising – especially when you come across sounds you’d never even considered before. You begin to realise that speaking and writing in English are two very different things. In writing, you only have a few letters to contend with. But in speaking, you have the sounds to deal with – and there are many more sounds in RP than there are letters in English.

For instance – there are two ways of saying the letter ‘L’. Who knew?

Matt covers both the light ‘L’ and the Dark ‘L’ in the lesson above, working on your tongue placement, sound correction, and imagery. Good luck!
