Standard American Accent

by Emma


I cannot afford taking private classes to learn standard American accent.What is the best book with audio cd`s to learn a standard American accent for those who English is a second language?


A very good book is Speak With Distinction (Textbook and CD). Several acting schools use it. Keep in mind, though, that even if you have a great book to work with, it’s not the same as having a coach listen to you and correct you. Sometimes we don’t “hear” ourselves having an accent. You can record yourself, though, as you work. That should help a lot. If you decide to get the book, click on the affiliate link above. It’s the same price for you and you’ll be supporting our website at the same time. Thanks and good luck!
