This course is about how to quickly learn to say the 44 sounds in English (including the 20 vowel international phonics sounds) and reduce your accent audibly. A suggested twice a week course. We will cover the most important phonics/sounds that my clients - from India, China, France, Russia, Brazil, Spain, and so on - have the most problems with business in the US/Silicon Valley. You don't have to go through all the lectures, just pick the areas you feel you still have to work on and practice the words diligently. You will see the slides that go with the video, and most of the time, I also uploaded additional practice materials. You will see results fast if you work on your English pronunciation consistently. Master the American Accent book will be provided (228 pages). Who this course is for: You need to know some spoken American English already to benefit from the course. But, since this is an American English-speaking course with lots of examples, if you practice a lot, you will be successful and will master American English. We will cover all 44 phonic sounds of the English language. As an English Curriculum and Instructor for 20 years, I always found it fascinating when my foreign students would be able to sing a standard American song with NO accent. Somehow, singing eliminated their accent. Since that discovery, I have created a proven, groundbreaking, easy-to-understand, result-oriented approach to ultimately reduce and in some cases, eliminate the foreign accent (don't worry, it doesn't involve you singing LOL!). The ONLY way we can learn the American Accent is to retrain our tongue and soft palette muscles to create these American sounds and rhythms that our body is just not used to. I will be providing you with specific exercises focusing on the sound and feel of specific American "Targeted" sounds and how they link to every consonant. In addition, I will share specific singing techniques to help create reliable muscle memory that you can call upon instantly. This technique has helped so many of my accent reduction students master the American Accent much faster. By the end of this course, you would have gone through every possible combination of sounds. There will be nothing you will come across that we haven't covered in your practice. We aim to ensure these improvements are retained, so you can call upon them when needed. That will involve practicing on your end. You will improve much more rapidly if you commit to the practice exercises. Take the first step to propel your career to the next level! Who this course is for: Anyone whose first language isn't English Anyone who wants to master the American Accent Anyone who wants to improve their communication skills Anyone who wants to master outstanding communication skill in their business and personal lives

I love to teach accent reduction! My students are amazed once they learn how Americans really speak and that they can learn to speak like that too. From the first few classes, you will find that your attention is immediately drawn to how you are pronouncing not only individual words but complete sentences, and how your ear will quickly become attuned to the reductions and links that Americans make. We will use a variety of sources to target the most challenging areas for you, and you will have the opportunity to record our classes for your personal use. The first lesson will Include a review of your diagnostic test so that we can see what areas you need to focus on first. It's really fun and exciting to see how quickly your accent develops into one that people can understand better and that you feel more confident using. Let's do this!

I have developed a proven, groundbreaking, unique, fun and interactive approach to reduce, and in some cases eliminate the foreign accent completely. How you ask? Being a singing teacher for over 15 years, I have always found it fascinating when my foreign students would be able to sing a standard American song with NO accent. Somehow, singing completely eliminated their accent. Since that discovery, I was determined to find out why and how. Based on my research, I have created a very easy to understand method that can dramatically reduce the foreign accent. Coming from an immigrant family myself, and being fluent in three languages (English, Spanish, Italian), I can relate to the challenges foreigners face when attempting to speak in a neutralized American accent. This can be holding you back from advancing your career. You will see results instantly. Take the first step to propel your career to the next level!
