Course Description

Learn the American Accent and reach your personal and professional goals! Imagine yourself with the job you’ve always wanted, a promotion, traveling, speaking with confidence and attracting people. It could happen sooner than you think!

I truly believe that if you found this American English Accent training course, you understand a profound truth: That your education, skills, and talents no matter how impressive, can be limited by the way you speak English. Whether it’s a promotion at work, being more confident, getting that dream job, travel, or developing relationships and making new friends, it's even more attainable when your level of English and accent is similar to those we work with, and those we want to befriend.

This course will be much different than simply watching a movie or television show, as I’m sure you’re already doing. It’s not passive, but active learning of the principles of the American Accent. With each line from the movie, I will take you by the hand, and point out the principles of accent and pronunciation behind it. Why did the actor say it that way he did? We will unlock the secrets together, letter by letter, line by line.

When I was learning Tagalog (Filipino) and Spanish, having a native of those languages explain some things to me saved me tons of time, and embarrassment. Since I learned it in context, in its natural setting, it became an experience, which makes a strong impression on the memory. That propelled my language learning advancement. Those experiences are the secret to getting the Accent down correctly. With this American Accent course, you will get all those experiences and focused lessons on a regular on demand basis through nearly 50 different lectures!

The course, though engaging and fun, is for those willing to work hard daily, make progress, to obtain the American Accent. My course is especially designed for English speakers (intermediate to advanced) who wish to take their English to the next level, and obtain all the personal and professional rewards that come with speaking like a native.

What are the requirements?

  • Students will need to be mentally prepared to work hard and be consistent in studying the lectures and be devoted to applying them every day. Access to the introduction to the movie Hitch is required. Students can simply do a google or youtube search or purchase the DVD in English.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Understand components of the American Accent as they are being spoken by a native speaker • Find out the most important sound in American English. • Finally learn why natives sound the way they do • Isolate certain sounds that separate you from native speakers •Overcome problem areas of speech and accent • Learn what is just as important as pronunciation • Learn What intonation is, and how it works in real time! • Utilize voiced sounds •Learn How to develop the timing of a native speaker • Know how to unlock the “music” of American English • Understand the secret beyond just pronunciation • Understand How to sound more like a native • Learn How proper emphasis can make the phrases (What did you say? Or I’m sorry, would you repeat that?) a thing of the past. Take the American Accent principles and apply them to other tv shows, movies, and conversations between native speakers
  • Have the tools needed to speak with confidence!

What is the target audience?

  • This course is especially designed for English speakers (intermediate to advanced) who wish to take their English to the next level, and obtain all the personal and professional rewards that come with speaking like a native. The course, though engaging and fun, is for those willing to work hard daily, make progress, and obtain the American Accent.

Instructor Biography

American Accent Pro, Speech Trainer 30+ Years- Professional American Accent Coach

Let me utilize my nearly 30 years of public speaking experience, training, and private American Accent coaching to help you achieve the level of American English pronunciation and accent you need to speak confidently and reach your goals!

I have spoken in front of thousands of people and have coached trainers, and other speakers from all over the world to do the same with confidence. International companies like R2S and Cartus have hired me to teach their employees and clients from outside the USA to reduce their accents, and improve their abilities to communicate with co-workers, staff, and clients.

Additionally, I have provided private, one and one consultation and coaching to professionals from over a dozen countries who wish to develop the American Accent, speak with confidence, and sound like a native. This training has also enriched the students' lives personally and many have become my life-long friends.

I have glowed with pride when students tell me that others have complimented them on their accent and pronunciation. I have had students that have been mistaken for native English speakers. Would you like to be one of them?
