Hi! My name is Whitney. I am an international English professor and I have been an English professor of EFL for almost 23 years, during which time I have taught at all levels, and many age groups from Middle School up to adults. I have taught at a few big organizations in Korea and China, Open Universities, technical colleges, and high schools. I take great satisfaction in the fact that I was successful in helping even the weakest students to speak English and dramatically improve the level of many of those I taught. My success in teaching English is a huge part of why I am so confident in giving advice about learning languages. As English has become such an important skill for connecting with the world at large – be it for business, education or pleasure – I am eager to do all I can to support you in reaching your individual goals. www.englishwithwhitney.com

––––––––

It may frustrate you endlessly – especially as a professional with goals of being successful in your career. The fact that many find your accent charming doesn’t compensate much. It certainly doesn’t mean it’ll make you successful.

Of course, your accent is less than charming when it prevents someone from understanding what you’re saying. It’s less than charming when you find yourself repeating yourself. It’s especially frustrating and less than charming when you discover that your accent is actually preventing you from advancing in your chosen career.

While this book is useful to all individuals who wish to reduce their accent and sound more like a native speaker, it’s written with the professional individual in mind. If your English language skills are solid, your grasp of the vocabulary solid and you’re comfortable speaking the language itself, then you may very well be searching for the last piece of the puzzle. Eliminating the accent so you can not only be understood a bit more easily, but feel like you’re a better fit into your office environment.

As sad as it may seem, a strong accent when speaking English can actually keep you from achieving your career goals as well as reaching your full potential. It has been proven that when some individuals continually ask you to repeat yourself, it can lower your chances of professional advancement. In other words, enunciating your words and using correct grammar are two requirements to conquer the business world today.

I know how serious you are about your career. Because of this, I also know how serious you are about improving both your pronunciation and in the process reducing and eliminating your accent. This book deals specifically with helping you speak more

    This has all the material I am looking for in teaching students to recognize individual sounds of English and some basics of how sounds connect in sentences and phrases. the writer seems to think that what students need is to *understand* the differences between sounds in their language and English. That may be a starting point, but understanding what is different is not the same as being able to change the way you speak. But the price is great and there's a lot of info here.

    4 Stars, I find that in information in this book are not bad, but I still have to put in quite a lot of work in order to improve my accent. After watching hundreds of movies and by repeating words thousand times, I did improve my pronunciation.

    Great Read. I'm an American culture coach and I use this book with my clients. My clients are professionals who know their areas of expertise very well, but know they aren't always understood in the workplace. the writer seems to think that what students need is to *understand* the differences between sounds in their language and English. That may be a starting point, but understanding what is different is not the same as being able to change the way you speak. But the price is great and there's a lot of info here.
