Scottish Accent

Scottish accents can actually vary a good deal. Commonly Glasgow is considered one of the thickest accents in Scotland, while Edinburgh is perhaps the lightest - but the two are only about 50 miles apart! Very few people still speak the Scots language today, but it has definitely had a grrreat influence on the dialect!

Scottish Accent Learning Materials

  • The Scottish accent materials include recordings of AccentHelp coaches Jim Johnson guides you through learning the accent, along with a native Scottish woman reading through all of the practice words and sentences. Jim also leads you through applying the accent to a practice monologue, along with a version of the monologue from the native Scottish speaker.
  • You'll get over seven hours of recordings, including six volumes of native speakers, along with a PDF transcript of their conversations so that you can follow along as you listen. (You can view the complete listing by clicking on the icon to the left.)
  • You'll get a PDF of the text teaching you the accent, plus three more formats of the book: a PDF for printing, a MOBI version for Kindle, and EPUB for other portable readers.
  • This accent is appropriate for productions of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and other plays. You also hear it in films like Trainspotting and from people like Gerard Butler.
  • All of the sound files are in MP3 format so that you can play them on your computer, load them onto your phone, or burn them to a CD.
  • You'll receive a link via email so that you can download all of the materials as ZIP files directly to your computer.
  • You'll also get future updates for free! (last update: 2020)
