Dear students,
To make sure you can understand when booking, this course was designed for long-term learning. It means that once per week, it will take you at least four months of study.

American Accent Course is interesting and hard at the same time because you have to change your articulation completely! I can help you understand and conquer the American pronunciation in detail by practicing with the phonetic exercises I prepared for you, and correct apparent mistakes during our sessions.
But you have to remember that it is not enough to memorize it - you have to exercise it every day, That's why I have recordings for you to practice your pronunciation.
If you are willing to sound like an American, I am happy to help!

And like I say, ”You may know grammar and speak with no problem, but phonetics is your key to success!”

Please, contact me directly to figure out if I am available another day and time. We will make it work!
See you soon 😉

First of all I would like to thank Alexander for all experinece and knoweldge I have gaind. All the time people ask me "Your pronunciation is perfect and you speak fluently, where did you get it?" and my reply always is the same "If only you knew my tecaher of English you would probably speak as well as me" So Alexander's approach of teaching is definitely thoughtful and results are not long in coming. I really recomed to all my acquitances to begin this amazing English lnguage trip with Alex. The level of his knowelede is extrelemly high without any doubt.

Alex showed me that great opportunities are possible to achieve. He helped me with TOEFL prep. and did a fantastic job! I scored 86 while my only hoping was <50.
At the same time, Mr. Obskov helped me improve my American accent skills and I’m truly thankful for this!
Fantastic teaching! Super nice communication! Great discipline!

Alexander is an amazing professor of English I've ever met in my life. A year ago I started learning American Accent with him, and no doubts this professor knows what he does. From the first our session I didn't noticed how time flew away because it was so interesting and fun. He explains every phoneme distinguished in the English language in details, and there are lots of phonetic exercises he provides to practice it. I took twice a week sessions, and it took me a term to complete the whole course. After last session, Alexander gave me recommendations to practice it myself.
Thank you so much and wish you luck!
You're the best!
