England: Still Learning to Speak its Name

England: Still Learning to Speak its Name | Wanting to be there: England | Scoop.it

Contributing to this Bella Caledonia series only reminds me how far behind England is relative to the rest of the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Scotland decides on independence in less than a year, Wales is debating devolving police and criminal justice powers, while the Republic of Ireland has just voted in support of retaining the Senead, the upper house of their parliament. Then look at England – or rather, at the Westminster political class and London cultural elite. Here, ‘constitutional matters’ are not considered fundamental to the workings of the nation or Union, to be decided by the will of the people. Instead they are routinely dismissed as dull and a distraction from ‘real politics’.

Learn Different English Accents Using Map your Voice | Wanting to be there: England | Scoop.it

"Map your Voice is a great website for English language learners. It allows its users to have access to a plethora of English accents. Mastering English pronunciation is one of the most difficult things about learning this language. I have been teaching English for eight years and I know exactly how hard it is for students to decode vocal messages uttered by native speakers particularly from countries such as Scotland or Australia. With Map your Voice you can give your learners a chance to learn the different accent of English in such an easy way."
