I have a special technique for drilling….

in the language class…. and it will help improve your pronunciation and memorisation of vocabulary. It is however, a completely different “kettle of fish” to the to the “drill” music referred to in the Economist’s article (link below).

What captured my attention in the article was how it claims London slang or “MLE” – Multicultural London English is being spread around the world due to the “Drill” music genre. It reminded me of a nice video clip that I used to use a lot in lessons about the London or British accent and for listening comprehension exercises. Here you’ll hear the voice coach explaining what exactly is meant by MLE.
