Do people find it difficult to understand you in English because of your accent? Does this affect your professional image or make you a bit uncomfortable even in social conversation? Do you want to talk and sound just like an American?
You can, and you can do so through resources available online and through various practice tools you can use at our convenience, according to your particular level of need and timetable.
For everyone, whatever language we first speak will largely determine the rythmn, inflections, and other details of our speech pattern. So even if you are speaking with grammatical correctness in a language -- say, English, the native English speakers may not be accustomed to hearing their language according to your inflections.
Of course, this can occur in the other direction as well. You may find that when others speak in your language, they may bring a different inflection and pronunciation which make them difficult to understand.
This can occur even between two English speakers if one is American and one is British -- whose every vocabulary and intonations differ in a number of respects. That is why some say that the United States and Britain are two countries separated by the same language!
THE GOOD NEWS IS, you can benefit from online and customized tools which you can access for sharpening your skills at pronunciation, inflection and other speech patterns used by most native English speakers.
ATTENTION ESL TEACHERS! THESE RESOURCES CAN HELP YOU TEACH YOUR STUDENTS TO SPEAK AMERICAN ENGLISH WITHOUT AN ACCENT.
