Just finished the 1st lesson for 21Accents’ American Accent Training Course, and it’s AMAZING! Those hand gestures that Amy does on the video to help with the sound placement work like a charm! I was able to recreate the correct sounds right away! I feel so good about it! Can’t wait to finish the course and sound like an American! Yay!
Thank you, Alex and Amy, for those videos. I was sure that the road to achieving a Standard American accent was pretty bumpy and hard, and I will have to minimize using my native languages as much as possible (a few of my fellow actors do that), but it turns out it’s a joyful ride!
