As with any accent, listening to and imitating a native speaker is the best and fastest way to learn. Read Times Now and The Hindu English newspaper. Listen to English songs. Read novels in English as per your interest. Translate words in English and listen to the pronunciation.

It same as any other language you speak. You need to understand the accent, grammar, and vocabulary for that. Do not for to practice to excel the knowledge over any language. Keep learning!

I think the best way to learn a particular accent is to expose yourself to an environment that makes you practice it in day-to-day life. So, going through Netflix, British radio, and podcasts are good ways to understand how others are doing it, but learning won't be as effective until you practice it...

I think the best way to learn a particular accent is to expose yourself to an environment that makes you practice it in day-to-day life. So, going through Netflix, British radio, and podcasts are good ways to understand how others are doing it, but learning won't be as effective until you practice it regularly.
I suggest joining some speaking groups on social media or finding people with similar interests to practice and listening to podcasts or streaming services.

To start speaking British accent is to watch more English movies, and to identify the British accent is simple, they won't pronounce alphabet "T", it would be silent like for example word "British" is pronounced "Bri sh".

India follows British English. So if you are speaking English in India without any MTI or accent, then you are technically speaking British English. Then comes the British accent for which can only be learnt through listening. So listen to many movies, videos on youtube, and the BBC news (this is how I started). Watch the film 'sound music, 'my fair lady' ' and many more British movies, songs and videos. But the only way is to listen and practice it: practice practice and more practice.

Some quick and practical tips that you can apply immediately-

  1. Start with the Rs -don't pronounce the r, but draw out the vowel and maybe add an "Uh" (here is "Heeuh").
  2. U's- pronounce 'u' in stupid and in duty with the 'ew' or "You" sound.
  3. Heavy consonants- enunciate heavy consonant words. Pronounce that t in "Duty" as T: not as the 'd' as doody so that duty is pronounced dewty or a softer jooty. Pronounce the suffix -ing with a strong g. This way, it sounds like -ing rather than - een.
  4. Sometimes drop the ts-so "Battle" might be pronounced ba-ill.
  5. Listen to the "Music" of the language. All accents and dialects have their musicality. Pay attention to the tones and emphasis of British speakers.

I hope it helps!
