ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Author is an experienced Speech and Hearing professional who originally developed the materials for this audio series while working with her Native Chinese students at the Institute of Accent Modification located in Chicago, Illinois. She and her team of professionals discovered that the students had studied English in Mainland China and Taiwan, however when they arrived to the United States, the students realized that Americans spoke very differently. The materials consist of a 70 page workbook and 16 track Audio, which was originally available only to the students at the Institute, but has now been released worldwide to help others.

Changing some of your old habits takes time and dedication, but as you start learning you will begin to sound more natural. There are several phases which will take place in this process. Initially, you will learn new sounds and get familiar with the rhythm and flow of speech. The initial phase of learning to hear new sounds and to discriminate which English sounds are difficult is critical. Learning how to hear these sounds correctly will help you tremendously with your English pronunciation. After the initial phase, you will learn how to apply these principles in words, short phrases, and gradually sentences. Finally, as you continue these new habits will start to automatically transfer in your everyday speech.

7 weeks to A Better American Accent breaks down the basics of American stress patterns, vowels, consonants, and idiomatic expressions in a step-by-step model that allows the participant to work at his or her own pace in developing a competent command of American English. Upon successful completion of the seven week program, Native Chinese speakers will have internalized a foundation of basic tools to help them improve business relations, personal interactions, and day to day understanding of American English. Here's the information that is contained in the first volume:

1. How to master intonation (rhythm and flow) of the American English language
