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 the most essential sounds, rhythms, and melodies of "General" American accents, as well as clear and practical guidance for how to move forward and continue to practice on your own.

Both include a complete set of supporting resources.
