Today get a list of the best series that will increase your understanding of the British accent.

With the enormous reach of American media, most likely you are already practiced and competent in your understanding of our accent.

However, you may have difficulty understanding the British accent, of which there are many variations. You must be comfortable with all of these accents so you’re ready for the IELTS Listening exam.

Having said that, you can make this practice fun! The following shows are all available on Netflix, and they are all shows that I personally recommend to not only students, but also friends.




  • Very British Problems (This show also gives you an inside look at British culture.)
  • The Office (There is also an American version of this show. Both versions are hilarious.)


  • Black Mirror (*Note: This one is intense, but amazing! Also, be aware that it has very mature content.)
