How do the course videos differ from the ones you provide for free on your YouTube channel?
The course videos are much more elaborate, include accompanying worksheets and are built to guide you along a course rather than the random tips we share for free. Of course, there are also the exclusive workshops where you will learn our latest methods and practices, including the archive of past workshops.
I bought the course a while ago and the website seems different now. How do I gain access to the course?

If I work with a coach can I expect to master XXX accent?
Partner and Coach Alex is proof that it is absolutely possible. He was born in Spain, but after two years of working with Amy, Americans often comment that they think he was born here in the US.
Our coaches will do their best to help you reach and surpass your goals, but the biggest factor will be your continued practice and commitment. It’s essential to study in between sessions. Your coach will help you to build a targeted, effective structure for continued self-study.
Sanee is a brilliant accent coach. He has a great ear for the details and subtleties in an accent and uses easy, accessible approaches for me to improve. I now have some very quick, useful ways of getting the correct placement for sounds. I feel more confident and aware of fluctuations in an accent. I actually felt myself improve more in two sessions with Sanee than weeks with other accent coaches.“
I had landed a role that required an upper class posh British accent. I was a bit insecure (because English isn’t my first language) but working with Sanee, it honestly came out naturally. Not only did he teach me the correct form to speak in this accent, but he also gave me advice on the delivery of my lines. Sanee is honest, motivating, and a delight to work with. I truly recommend him and would definitely contact him again for any of my future performances!”
Working with Sanee is an absolute pleasure. His technique is both fun and straightforward. He makes sounds make sense and everything becomes logical and easier! I highly recommend him!
