Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In recent years, Barron's American Accent Training has gained wide respect as a self-teaching program, but more and more speech trainers, teachers, and speech therapists report that they are also using it as a valuable teaching tool in their speech classes. This new third edition has been given streamlined packaging. The book now comes with five new audio CDs enclosed in vinyl sleeves and bound to the book's inside back cover. The combination book/audio CD package goes where no American accent program has gone before, providing highly innovative instruction for both students and business people.

  • Four all-new chapters in the book cover the psychology of accent acquisition, American voice quality, a pronunciation overview, and an instructor's overview
  • Professional male and female voices on the CDs have been carefully selected to represent authentic American pronunciation and intonation
  • Pronunciation exercises encompass all vowel sounds, consonants, blends, and diphthongs
  • Emphasis on linking, or phonetically transcribed sound liaisons help students "see" the correct sounds
  • Designed for foreign-born students and business people working, traveling, or studying in the United States and Canada

    Supplementary materials include detailed nationality guides for 10 languages (Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Spanish, French, German, Russian, Korean, Arabic, and the U.S. Southern accent). More valuable features include access to a comprehensive website, and referral to a qualified telephone analyst for an individual diagnostic speech analysis.
