The best way to learn an accent is to get a tape recorder and to speak continuously into it using the accent you wish to learn. After this, listen to the recording and pick out words or phrases that sound "unaccented" and practice these through recordings. Also, look up common expressions in the British lexicon. Good Luck!

Go to the library and get a cassette tape or CD with British speaking. Stand in front of a mirror and practice what you hear. This might take a while> Or you can meet some englishmen and listed how they talk, it might wear on you. Surround yourself with the British.
