How do you say insurance?
Many of my accent reduction clients ask me how say the word insurance.
North Americans pronounce this word two different ways; i→nsurance & insur→ance.
My personal preference is to stress the second syllable.

This is how I say & spell the word insurance for my accent reduction coaching clients:
Note that the letter a has a reduced schwa vowel sound /ə/.
Respelling mispronounced words is just one strategy that I use to help my accent reduction coaching clients speak American English more clearly and fluently.
Respelling always helps people visualize and pronounce words the correct way!
