For a modern version of the English accent, watch BBC America. You can also watch the BBC news website online video of their news programs and practice how they say what is said.

I think the ideal way is to surround yourself with other British people. Their slang and mannerisms will rub off. If you can't do that, then next best thing is TV or movies.. You can't do much better than all the Brit-coms that are out there!

I think you are exactly right... I visited London for an extended period last year, and I started to pick up the accent almost inadvertently. I think accents just tend to rub off on you if you are exposed long enough.  add a comment
