A virtual version of our popular curator-led session for schools and colleges

Led by British Library research staff, experts in English accents and dialects, this session introduces ways of analysing spoken English.

Through this talk, students will learn about language change, language variation, and regional vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar in the UK. Students will be introduced to British Accents and Dialects, a site that captures and celebrates the diversity of spoken English in the second half of the 20th century, and Voices of the UK, a British Library research project that opens up the BBC Voices sound recordings to students and researchers.

This live, interactive session is delivered online through video calling. Complete a booking request or contact us for more details.
