What do you need in order to get a good and affordable American accent training? First of all you need to know if such training is vital to you, because if you don’t have enough motivation, no training will help you. And of course you need to know if there is any problem with your accent. If people often ask you to repeat, if they hardly understand you, then yes. You definitely need to work out on your accent.
Many people think that accent equals pronunciation. However, pronunciation is just one part of accent. The other important parts are intonation and word connections or liaisons. In order to acquire American accent you need to master all of them. You need to master connected speech. In fact intonation and proper stress are lot more important than pronunciation of individual sounds. If a person can speak with good intonation he will be easily understood even if he can’t pronounce properly some of individual sounds.
Sometimes people ask, “Can I get an American accent in two minutes a day?” Well, it’s obvious that two minutes a day is just not enough. However, if you will practice American accent every day, 15 minutes a day is that what you need.
