The key to British accents is dropping your jaw!  Most people will try to have the air at the roof of their mouths and tongue touching their teeth.  This doesn’t work!  You will sound stupid.  I was in London over break and heard British accents left and right.  I have a friend ‘across the pond’ who wanted to see if I could do a Brit accent and the times he said that sounded realistic were the times I dropped my jaw.  This is because your mouth is relaxed.  No one really talks while being really stiff the entire time. So if you relax your mouth, drop your jaw, you’re sure to get a perfect accent every time….with a little practice, of course.   – Kelsey
