American Accent for Mandarin Speakers
After 10 years of coaching, 2018 is year I DID it!
I finally organized the American accent lessons that I’ve developed for Mandarin speakers since I started coaching back in 2007.
I updated many of the best lessons to create an online course that Mandarin speakers can use to get started on their American accent training.
The course is called American Accent for Mandarin Speakers 101.
Here are some of the skills I teach you in the course:
- How to pronounce words clearly using the correct syllable stress.
- How to use the schwa vowel sound.
- How and when to use the American T sounds.
- How to pronounce word final S sounds.
- How to link and blend words together for smooth speech.
You won’t “lose” your accent
Will this course enable you “lose your accent”? Of course not. Don’t believe the hype you read about that.
What’s true is this: the American accent skills you learn in this course will enable you to speak American English more clearly.
The American accent skills you learn in this course will enable you to speak in a manner that sounds friendly to Americans.
You’ll understand how Americans speak
After taking this course, you’ll understand the American accent in a whole new way.
I guarantee it!
