    The American English Accent Course

    Nobody needs to change their accent; it's a personal decision! If your accent bugs you - if it screws with your confidence, makes it difficult to be understood, or is the reason why natives speak slower to you - I've made a course to help you out.

    The American English Accent course teaches the foundations and structure of a good accent. From word and syllable stress, to linking, glottal stops, reductions and minimal pairs, you'll be taught exactly how to mimic the sounds of native speakers.

    Access the course here.
