Publisher Comments:

This unusual book and Compact Discs program has special value for foreign-born students and business people who are working, traveling, or going to school in the United States or Canada. Its purpose is to eliminate the speaker's often difficult-to-comprehend accent through training in the rhythms and sound-flow of English as it is spoken in North America. In the process, students will also dramatically improve their English listening comprehension. Durable and convenient Compact Discs replace the cassette tapes that came in this program's first edition. Supplementary materials include colored markers that facilitate speech exercises contained in the book. There is also a hand mirror so students can watch their own lip movements and get them right in the process of learning American speech patterns.

Synopsis:

The second edition of the highly acclaimed American Accent Training, now on 5 audio CDs, is for foreign-born students and business people working, traveling or studying in the United States and Canada. Through extensive intonation and pronunciation exercises, students learn how to speak with a standard American Accent. At the same time, listening comprehension improves dramatically. Supplementary materials included detailed nationality guides for eight languages (Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Spanish, French, German, Russian and Korean), access to a comprehensive website, and referral to a qualified telephone analyst for an individual diagnostic speech analysis. Also included are colored markers for written exercises, and a mirror to practice accurate pronunciation.

Targeted to foreign-born business people working, traveling, or going to school in the U.S., this guide can help eliminate the speaker's accent through training in the rhythms and sound-flow of English as it is spoken in North America. Includes five CDs, colored markers, and a hand mirror. Pkg.
