A must-have for any English learning

This is a book that I would like to recommend to all English learners. Before I read this book, I was skeptical of how a book could help someone to actually correct their accents. It really surprises me! It explains everything clearly and the exercises are practical and helpful. I hope everyone could have the chance to read it!

Lovely!

This is a great book for improving one's accent. It has many exercises, excellent audio and great content. It talks about word stress, sentence stress, vowel changes, reductions, and much more. It includes everything second language learners need to know about pronunciation so that they can be understood.

The author explains so well which are the most important facts for having an American accent, how it can be useful for applying a job and for the communication and interaction with others. I really like the exercises that the author propose and the easy that they are.
