(CORRECTION TO VERSION 1) LINE 1: `FOUR' NOT FOR WEEK
After I had completed a four week seminar at the Euro Center Language School in Alexandria, Virginia, my teachers gave me the best training marks a student ever got there: four `10's. Nevertheless, American native speakers were still able to detect my German accent in my English. Then I found Ann Cook's AAT in a book store in Washington D.C. I started an intense training. Recently I attended an English class in Munich, Germany, where I live. The teacher, an American from New York, wanted me to leave the class room because she thought I was an American who wanted to pull her leg by coming to her class. By the way, it's never too late to start with AAT: I'm 60 years of age. Anybody can do it if he or she tries hard.

After I spent 14 months in school learning English I received my ESL certification. However, although my understanding of, writing, and reading in English were proficient. My pronunciation was very poor and many a time I had to repeat my words for people to understand me. When I found Ann Cook's AAT I knew I had what I needed to overcome this problem. I finished the whole book in a matter of days and I noticed the great difference, some people don't believe English is my second language. Thanks Ann for this excellent way to help people like me with pronunciation problems. I have recommended this book to many of my friends, it's been very helpful for them as well.
