Publisher's Summary

This audio is the new and expanded third edition of American Accent Training, with four all-new chapters that cover the psychology of accent acquisition, American voice quality, a pronunciation overview, and an ESL instructor's guide. The audio features professional male and female voices that have been carefully selected to represent that perfect American accent. With 30 years of extensive research, the unique AAT methodology has been refined to teach the American sound quickly and easily, paying special attention to: 

Voice quality, with emphasis on accurate presentation of the authentic American sound 
Pronunciation, with attention to all vowels, consonants, blends, and diphthongs 
Intonation, which focuses on syllable stress rules and word stress in a sentence 
Linking, or liaisons between phonetically transcribed sounds so students can "see" the sound. 
Added features include access to comprehensive websites and referral to a qualified telephone analyst for individual help. 
American Accent Training has been Americanizing the speaking habits of students and businesspeople since 1991. Going where no accent training has gone before, AAT continues to set the standard for anyone learning or teaching the American accent.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
