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.
This is the most amazing accent training book/program that I have received! Being a English as Second Language (ESL) student I have been exposed to various learning programs of speaking, but no books, even many ESL teachers, can be as clear and effective as Ann Cook's work. This book provides a very comprehensive course to help me adapt my accent. It takes much time to practice and listen to CD, but all my time are well invested. Highly recommended!
