Help from the #1 book,
This review is from: Get Rid of Your Accent: The English Pronunciation and Speech Training Manual (Paperback)
This book helped me reduce my American accent.
Any foreigner knows that reducing your accent is hard work, and not a matter of theory or academic fashion. Get Rid of Your Accent is the #1 book by far. It has the most Amazon sales, the most Amazon reviews, and big displays in all the big bookshops in London and elsewhere. Why? Because it's the best.
The authors have degrees in phonetics and linguistics and lots of teaching experience. Why did they not write a dry academic textbook? Because it's not what most of us need.
There are some books labeled "advanced", and those are fine for a few people who are very advanced or who like theory. And there are some books with patronizing titles like "Ship or Sheep", as if we foreigners can't tell the difference. This is the only book by experts who really want to help readers get along in the UK. And it's a big success as a result. You'll see why when you buy it.
