Fry's English Delight


With a 1st class BA from University College London and a doctorate from UCLA, California, I’ve been teaching the intricacies of speech and accents for 25 years.

I give workshops and short courses in London and internationally, adapted to your requirements. I also give individual online coaching, wherever you are in the world.

Accent reduction lessons are for those who want to reduce the difference between their current accent and native English speech.  I also offer dialect coaching to actors, having professional experience myself of film and television work.

This website also contains a good deal of material on English pronunciation
, in both the pages on speech and my blog.  There are extensive audio illustrations, as well as tutorials and quizzes.
