I will try to write about things you will hopefully find useful, such as how to’s, useful resources in learning to obtain a more Standard American English accent (such as recommend books and websites), strategies to help you communicate more independently, student success stories, evidence-based research done about accents, frequent questions (FAQs) students ask and learning to live in the Washington, D.C. area in general. I may even share a bit about myself as an Accent Improvement specialist and a person.
As you read, I encourage you to provide feedback - whether it’s to suggest new content you would like to learn about, resources you have found to be helpful, your success stories (or your frustrations) in learning to speak English better or acclimating to the United States, or just to comment about things you read about on this blog, I am open to your comments. Please email me at Ellen@EnglishAccentTutor.com.
Thanks in advance for your time and happy reading!
