Learn the Cockney accent with Jason Statham


You’re asking me about Cockney accent? Did you know a “Cockney” used to be a
pejorative term for the working class Yeah. Nonsense! It is the accent of the true Londoner Who’s a true Londoner? If you’re thinking of that guy in Mary Poppins Nonsense, that is an American impostor, He is not British. He is not a real Londoner! Now, if you’re thinking of Michael Caine… He is a true Londoner! He’s a Cockney, and he’s a legend But how do you speak like a Cockney you ask? Well my son there are a few rules you have to follow if you want to sound like a true Londoner. First one is that “Schwa” sound my good friend Aly taught ya! that’s the “UH” sound. With a Cockney accent, it is more pronounced. Regular person might say “Doctor” But a Cockney says it “DoctAAAHH” Same as in Stronger” “Faster” “Harder” “StrongAAHH!” “FastAAHH!” “HARDAHH!” That brings us to our next point, Hs? Don’t need em! Get rid of em! Any word that begins with an H sound, Get rid of that H! Don’t need you, H! Never have! You’re useless! Words like: “Who” “Have” “House” we don’t use the Hs! Get rid of them! OOH! AV! OUSE! For example: Remember my good friend Aly’s lessons? You learned that “L”sounds can sometimes sound like a “W” For example in these words: “Hell” should be pronounced Cockney accent like “Hew” should become Another thing… My good friend Aly made you a video about the “Glottal T” This is the T sound which is replaced by the sound in the middle of ‘Uh-Oh’ The “Uh—” sound Words like: should sound like: The T stops in the throat So none of this: Nah! Should be: Remember to use the Glottal T the L that sounds like a W, and that big ‘schwa’ sound. Other words could include: Don’t know how much more I should tell you mate. Can tell you this, though There are two types of ‘TH’ sounds in English The ‘voiced’ which sounds like a: They have a vibration in the throat For example in words like: Those ‘TH’ sounds will be replaced by a V sound For example: The other ‘TH’ sound is UNvoiced, and that sounds like: Like in: and they should be replaced by Fs So and in some words like: We just don’t say the TH sounds all the time Just because… Next thing to remember sounds come from around the sides of the mouth So for example: should be more of an: Around the sides of the mouth ‘OR’ sounds become like: For example: Should become like: Words which have the ‘AI’ sound We don’t say them like ‘AI’ We say them like: For example: sounds like Also us cockneys, we prefer to say “me” instead of “my” For example Probably wouldn’t say that Notice again and we don’t use Hs because who needs them. Also a Cockney’s quite partial to double negatives and using the third person in reverse. For example You want some money? and third persons, we usually use them in reverse For example Keep it under your hat, yeah? But we have our words for things For example To say someone’s attractive To say the opposite, to say someone’s ugly: They are ‘A minger’ You wanna talk about money You’re talking about your dough, your dosh, mate! Us cockneys like to check for understanding in a conversation by asking this question: or You want a test, bruv? see how Cockney you are? Look at these sentences How would you, as a Cockney, say these? Think that’s all I can tell you for now

  1. I literally had to listen to it a few times cause all I was getting was "that's his ass" instead of "that's his house"

  2. For anyone wanting to learn Cockney in a fun an efficient way – just watch "Only Fools n Horses" with Del Boy and Rodney. This series is legendary in Balkan peninsula and has been the way to learn English the easy way in the Balkan's during 90's-00's. This video just confirmed it.

  3. I've heard Dodger in Oliver Twist talkin' in the cockney accent and I fell in live with it… But daaamn it's much more difficult and aggresive than me thought… I still love it though… 🙂

    2. Translate into my own language.

  11. fing is, yer gotta ave a lotta bottle if you wanna get yer 'ead around Cockney. And don't forget to frown and sound aggressive because obviously that's what all Cockneys do…

  12. Pardon me for splitting hairs but a "Cockney" used to be "Someone born within the sound of Bow Bells" — it was an accent specific to inner city East London. My mother was born in Bow but never used the argot unless she got annoyed with someone (the change from "cultured-ish middle class" to "what the hell was that?" could be quite unsettling). Generic London accents are similar but growing up you could easily tell the difference between someone from various areas of London (so Michael Caine is a South (East) Londoner, he's not from the East End). Times and demographics have changed of course so now I'm not sure if the accents and patios of London-speak would differentiate areas as much these days.

    (After moving to Manchester I found exactly the same differentiation of accent between the various parts of Greater Manchester.)(not so much south of the city center, though — Cheshire is somewhat posh!)

  13. Hello Papa English… like the cockney accent. Mat Watson from car wow seems like A cockney speaker. I'd like to know this as I get his pronounciation easily. Wolud you check it? If so maybe both of you would co – operate nad shoot something togother, mate?
