I love making resources on Pronunciation
We’ve made a stack of resources over the years, many of which are only accessible to our clients via their Cadenza portal, but I thought this blog post is a good chance to share our free Australian Pronunciation Resources – the top 5, because I think you’ll find them really helpful.
I’ve also popped a behind the scenes vlog of a typical admin day as director at Voice Science. This is a chance for you to tune into my real spoken English and pick up some new cultivated Australian accent hacks. I hope you like it! No two days are the same for me, but this one was definitely a fun (and busy) one.

The Aussie Accent is not the only way to speak English.
In fact, in Australia, we have numerous different forms of English pronunciation, and I’d argue that all of them are as legitimate and official as each other.
Your speaking is not inferior if you live in Australia but don’t have an Aussie accent.
Currently, there are more non-native speakers of English than native, so no one can tell you that using a mainstream Aussie accent is the only correct way to speak if you live in Australia.
