“General” American 101: The Essentials—Webinar

  • 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?
  • If any of this is you, I’ll be offering help, clarity, and specific tools for moving forward in this webinar.

We’ll 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

·      and several other essential and (often tricky!) vowel sounds.

What is “General” American anyway?

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’ll 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!).
