One of the books that I use with my American accent clients is called Speak Business English Like an American.
I use this book to teach common American English idioms and to practice complex intonation patterns in dialogs. This is a challenge but many of my clients really want to practice these skills.
This book is not the best option if you are looking for a basic foundation in the American accent and pronunciation.
For that I’d recommend you check out Mastering the American Accent because it’s accessible, affordable and has 4 full length CDs.
Most of my clients like Mastering the American Accent as a first book.
Anyway, Speak Business English Like an American is featured in today’s Wall Street Journal. The article content is about the importance of using slang in the American workplace. Click on the link above to read the article.
