Sound like a native English speaker in six easy lessons

Even though you know the vocabulary and the endless grammar rules, you still find it difficult to pronounce English words correctly. This struggle with your new language can make communicating with native English speakers a frustrating experience for both you and them. Now you can gain confidence in your English skills and speak like an American with this focused, nonintimidating program.

Improve Your American English Accent is an easy and enjoyable way to learn and master the most challenging American English speech characteristics, such as:

  • The most troublesome of sixteen American English vowel sounds
  • The duration of vowel sounds
  • Differences in stressed and unstressed syllables and words
  • How a sound is changed by the sounds that come before and after it
  • Stress in words and phrases and how it influences timing

The CDs present six 35-minute lessons, each one covering key obstacles faced by nonnative English speakers. Author Charlsie Childs is your own personal tutor, talking you through her proven methods for overcoming the tricks of English pronunciation. Accompanying the CDs is a booklet containing written pronunciation guidelines and transcriptions of the sounds, words, and sentences you encounter on the recording.
