Radley College - Last Night of Term - June 1976 - Public Schools - British Education and Culture
In 1974 I went to Radley College, Near Abingdon, Oxfordshire. Radley is an extremely posh British Public (private) School. In this video I recount my memories of the shenanigans that used to take place on the last night of term. I also recount a personal episode in the Provost's Lodgings of Queens College Oxford. You will learn a lot about the installations of a public school and how it works. I describe the place I had to sleep and other details. If you want to learn a bit about how pritish public schools were back in the 1970s then you should watch this video, It will teach you about British culture. http://www.iswearenglish.com/ https://www.facebook.com/iswearenglish https://twitter.com/iswearenglish https://plus.google.com/+iswearenglish

Posh English or Chav Talk - Translation of Estuary to Upper Received Pronunciation by Henry
Posh English or Chav Talk - Translation of Estuary to Upper Received Pronunciation by Henry Charles Fortescue Esq In this video Henry Charles Fortescue Esq (posh Henry) will translate the utterances of Terrence Kevein Bowels (Tel the Chav). This video contrasts the speech and vocabulary of the British upper class and the British working class in the Southern part of the UK. You will get tips on how to make your accent and voice sound posher and help you hone a posh English accent. Beware, Henry´s posh English voice is over the top and you need to tone down a little how he talks if you want to perfect a posh English accent. Try to enunciate every word of every phrase to give your accent that upper received pronunciation sound. Estuary English speakers who sound like Tel are very common in the South of the UK. Henry's posh accent can still be heard, but it sounds like very old fashioned English. Notice how Henry uses many more words than Tel to say the same thing. Notice how Tel the chav drops his hs and ts and pronounces th at the end of words as a v sound. Notice how Tel the chav speaks very fast and posh Henry speaks very slowly enunciating every word he says. Also notice how Tel speaks loudly and Henry speaks quietly. Tel shouts because he expects noone to listen to him, wheras Henry speaks softly because he expects the listeners to be hanging on his every word. Notice how posh Henry's body language is more descriptive, in contrast Tel the chav's body language is much more direct and intimidating. Translation of Estuary English into posh upper RP English shows the need to talk to different members of British society in different ways. If you have the ability to switch instantaneously from posh English to estuary English it can help you in a wide variety of social situations in the UK. http://www.iswearenglish.com/ https://www.facebook.com/iswearenglish https://twitter.com/iswearenglish https://plus.google.com/+iswearenglish

PG Wodehouse Absent Treatment, Posh Short Story from My Man Jeeves British English Reading Posh RP
PG Wodehouse Absent Treatment, Posh Short Story from My Man Jeeves British Reading Posh English RP This is a short story which is not about Bertie Wooster or Jeeves. It comes from a book of short stories by PG Wodehouse called My Man Jeeves. I have a British accent so you can hear a British reading of this story. ABSENT TREATMENT I want to tell you all about dear old Bobbie Cardew. It's a most interesting story. I can't put in any literary style and all that; but I don't have to, don't you know, because it goes on its Moral Lesson. If you're a man you mustn't miss it, because it'll be a warning to you; and if you're a woman you won't want to, because it's all about how a girl made a man feel pretty well fed up with things. If you're a recent acquaintance of Bobbie's, you'll probably be surprised to hear that there was a time when he was more remarkable for the weakness of his memory than anything else. Dozens of fellows, who have only met Bobbie since the change took place, have been surprised when I told them that. Yet it's true. Believe me. In the days when I first knew him Bobbie Cardew was about the most pronounced young rotter inside the four-mile radius. People have called me a silly ass, but I was never in the same class with Bobbie. When it came to being a silly ass, he was a plus-four man, while my handicap was about six. Why, if I wanted him to dine with me, I used to post him a letter at the beginning of the week, and then the day before send him a telegram and a phone-call on the day itself, and—half an hour before the time we'd fixed—a messenger in a taxi, whose business it was to see that he got in and that the chauffeur had the address all correct. By doing this I generally managed to get him, unless he had left town before my messenger arrived. The funny thing was that he wasn't altogether a fool in other ways. Deep down in him there was a kind of stratum of sense. I had known him, once or twice, show an almost human intelligence. But to reach that stratum, mind you, you needed dynamite. At least, that's what I thought. But there was another way which hadn't occurred to me. Marriage, I mean. Marriage, the dynamite of the soul; that was what hit Bobbie. He married. Have you ever seen a bull-pup chasing a bee? The pup sees the bee. It looks good to him. But he still doesn't know what's at the end of it till he gets there. It was like that with Bobbie. He fell in love, got married—with a sort of whoop, as if it were the greatest fun in the world—and then began to find out things. She wasn't the sort of girl you would have expected Bobbie to rave about. And yet, I don't know. What I mean is, she worked for her living; and to a fellow who has never done a hand's turn in his life there's undoubtedly a sort of fascination, a kind of romance, about a girl who works for her living. Her name was Anthony. Mary Anthony. She was about five feet six; she had a ton and a half of red-gold hair, grey eyes, and one of those determined chins. She was a hospital nurse. When Bobbie smashed himself up at polo, she was told off by the authorities to smooth his brow and rally round with cooling unguents and all that; and the old boy hadn't been up and about again for more than a week before they popped off to the registrar's and fixed it up. Quite the romance. Bobbie broke the news to me at the club one evening, and next day he introduced me to her. I admired her. I've never worked myself—my name's Pepper, by the way. Almost forgot to mention it. Reggie Pepper. My uncle Edward was Pepper, Wells, and Co., the Colliery people. He left me a sizable chunk of bullion—I say I've never worked myself, but I admire any one who earns a living under difficulties, especially a girl. And this girl had had a rather unusually tough time of it, being an orphan and all that, and having had to do everything off her own bat for years. Mary and I got along together splendidly. We don't now, but we'll come to that later. I'm speaking of the past. She seemed to think Bobbie the greatest thing on earth, judging by the way she looked at him when she thought I wasn't noticing. And Bobbie seemed to think the same about her. So that I came to the conclusion that, if only dear old Bobbie didn't forget to go to the wedding, they had a sporting chance of being quite happy. Well, let's brisk up a bit here, and jump a year. The story doesn't really start till then. They took a flat and settled down. I was in and out of the place quite a good deal. I kept my eyes open, and everything seemed to me to be running along as smoothly as you could want. If this was marriage, I thought, I couldn't see why fellows were so frightened of it. http://www.iswearenglish.com/ https://www.facebook.com/iswearenglish https://twitter.com/iswearenglish https://plus.google.com/+iswearenglish

THE INNOCENCE OF REGINALD by Saki - British English Reading - Short Story.by H.H.Monroe
THE INNOCENCE OF REGINALD by Saki - British English Reading - Short Story.by H.H.Monroe - British English Pronunciation Listen to me reading the short story "The Innocence of Reginald" by H.H.Monroe alias Saki. I have a British received pronunciation accent. The video also has the text on screen so that you can read along with me. There are also full English subtitles to this video. THE INNOCENCE OF REGINALD Reginald slid a carnation of the newest shade into the buttonhole of his latest lounge coat, and surveyed the result with approval. “I am just in the mood,” he observed, “to have my portrait painted by someone with an unmistakable future. So comforting to go down to posterity as ‘Youth with a Pink Carnation’ in catalogue–company with ‘Child with Bunch of Primroses,’ and all that crowd.” “Youth,” said the Other, “should suggest innocence.” “But never act on the suggestion. I don’t believe the two ever really go together. People talk vaguely about the innocence of a little child, but they take mighty good care not to let it out of their sight for twenty minutes. The watched pot never boils over. I knew a boy once who really was innocent; his parents were in Society, but they never gave him a moment’s anxiety from his infancy. He believed in company prospectuses, and in the purity of elections, and in women marrying for love, and even in a system for winning at roulette. He never quite lost his faith in it, but he dropped more money than his employers could afford to lose. When last I heard of him, he was believing in his innocence; the jury weren’t. All the same, I really am innocent just now of something everyone accuses me of having done, and so far as I can see, their accusations will remain unfounded.” “Rather an unexpected attitude for you.” “I love people who do unexpected things. Didn’t you always adore the man who slew a lion in a pit on a snowy day? But about this unfortunate innocence. Well, quite long ago, when I’d been quarrelling with more people than usual, you among the number–it must have been in November, I never quarrel with you too near Christmas–I had an idea that I’d like to write a book. It was to be a book of personal reminiscences, and was to leave out nothing.” “Reginald!” “Exactly what the Duchess said when I mentioned it to her. I was provoking and said nothing, and the next thing, of course, was that everyone heard that I’d written the book and got it in the press. After that, I might have been a gold- fish in a glass bowl for all the privacy I got. People attacked me about it in the most unexpected places, and implored or commanded me to leave out things that I’d forgotten had ever happened. I sat behind Miriam Klopstock one night in the dress circle at His Majesty’s, and she began at once about the incident of the Chow dog in the bathroom, which she insisted must be struck out. We had to argue it in a disjointed fashion, because some of the people wanted to listen to the play, and Miriam takes nines in voices. They had to stop her playing in the ‘Macaws’ Hockey Club because you could hear what she thought when her shins got mixed up in a scrimmage for half a mile on a still day. They are called the Macaws because of their blue-and-yellow costumes, but I understand there was nothing yellow about Miriam’s language. I agreed to make one alteration, as I pretended I had got it a Spitz instead of a Chow, but beyond that I was firm. She megaphoned back two minutes later, ‘You promised you would never mention it; don’t you ever keep a promise?’ When people had stopped glaring in our direction, I replied that I’d as soon think of keeping white mice. I saw her tearing little bits out of her programme for a minute or two, and then she leaned back and snorted, ‘You’re not the boy I took you for,’ as though she were an eagle arriving at Olympus with the wrong Ganymede. That was her last audible remark, but she went on tearing up her programme and scattering the pieces around her, till one of her neighbours asked with immense dignity whether she should send for a wastepaper basket. I didn’t stay for the last act.” “Then there is Mrs.–oh, I never can remember her name; she lives in a street that the cabmen have never heard of, and is at home on Wednesdays. She frightened me horribly once at a private view by saying mysteriously, ‘I oughtn’t to be here, you know; this is one of my days.’ I thought she meant that she was subject to periodical outbreaks and was expecting an attack at any moment. So embarrassing if she had suddenly taken it into her head that she was Cesar Borgia or St. Elizabeth of Hungary. That sort of thing would make one unpleasantly conspicuous even at a private view. However, she merely meant to say that it was Wednesday, which at the moment was incontrovertible. Well, she’s on quite a different tack to the Klopstock. http://www.iswearenglish.com/ https://www.facebook.com/iswearenglish https://twitter.com/iswearenglish https://plus.google.com/+iswearenglish
