Do you feel confident with your American accent?

Are you close to mastering it, but you’re still sometimes asked if you’re from somewhere else?

Do you miss out on American roles because there’s something “not quite right” about your accent?

Are you a non-native speaker who doesn’t even know where to begin?

In these webinars, you will learn specific tools for mastering some of the most essential sounds of "General" American accents, as well as clear and practical guidance for how to move forward and continue to practice on your own.

“General” American 101—The Essentials and "General" American 102—Building Skills are recordings of earlier live webinars. Both include a complete set of supporting resources.


The specifics

In these workshops, we explore:

  • The “oral posture” of American English
  • The peculiar articulation that is the American ‘r’ sound
  • How to master the difference between the vowels in sheep and ship, green and grin
  • How to master the difference between the vowels in pull and pool, soot and suit
  • How to master the difference between the two different ‘th’ sounds in words like this and thin
  • Some of the trickiest vowel sounds in "General" American
  • How 'r' sounds work when they come after a vowel sound
  • How stress and rhythm function in American English
  • How to warm-up properly to get quicker results

Whether you’re a Brit, an Aussie, a Kiwi, or a non-native speaker of English, you need to find an American English accent that fits you and your casting like a glove. So we also focus on:

  • How to find your American accent—where to look, what to listen for, and more.
  • How to keep practicing on your own (Practice makes perfect, after all!).
