This is a great guide.

The five chapters that I read were very good and well organized. Whitney provides lot of examples to practice. The hints were really helpful. It was a very good experience for me. In addition to learning how to pronounce words from Whitney's sessions, I have also started to pay more attention to how others pronounce words. It was an important thing that Whitney stresses in this book.

Awesome

It can make me realize how important the reading out loud is. Beside that, the author says, "the method of shadowing while walking is a great way to be a fluent speaker like a native." I love this method and I agree with it.

Really effective techniques!

This book is for someone who has already learned a second language (and it primarily focuses on English as that second language), but wants to take the next step and eliminate their accent entirely. While the author is appealing to folks whose second language is English, it is presented in a way that would be beneficial for anybody looking to master a second language. Highly recommended!

Good!

If you did not grow up in US or have any formal course of English speaking training, you'd find this book and CDs really helpful. No matter how long you've been here, you'd find a few interesting things in this course.

Wow

Innovative, creatively inspired, practical - and written with wit and wry humor, too. Ann Cook has dissected and then packaged a remarkable program based on the understanding of the rhythms and intonations in the American accent. We speak in melodic and rhythmic phrases – simply learning to pronounce individual words is akin to only playing individual notes as opposed to speaking in sound groups. My ESL and accent students love the exercises, and after they “get it” they’re amazed. A great, great resource and approach. It changed forever how I thought about the language that I love to speak, study and teach.

Great book for learners.

I was originally born in Malaysia and immigrated to the United States at an early age. I needed to learn how to pronounce words correctly and fluently. In Malaysia, people do speak English but mix it with different dialects which confuses the language. After using this book, it dramatically increased my fluency in English.
