Get Rid of your Accent,Part One
“This is a great audio book. The narrators are quite good, and the lessons proceed smoothly. Lots of practice works, sentences, and limericks to reinforce. I have been wanting to practice my British accent, and this works well as one of my tools. I listen to ten minute intervals each night, then watch segments of Doc Martin, House of Cards (British), and Parliament.UK to get more immersion. Lots of fun.”

"An excellent, highly recommended book for everyone who wants to improve their accent. I purchased Get Rid of your Accent Parts One, Two, and Three. Each book has a different set of well-structured lessons which make the learning experience positive and highly effective.
The lessons comprise a descriptive commentary supported by exercises and witty dialogues that are easy to memorise while listening to the included CDs.
Regular reading of passages and practising the dialogues greatly improve pronunciation skills and help to grasp the rhythm of English and intonation patterns."
Highly recommended! ★★★★★

This book was recommended by a good friend, on whose opinion I can usually rely. Wow! After just a few days of rather intensive practice I received a compliment about how much better I can speak now. Well, actually I can hear the improvement myself. The important change is I can hear myself as I speak much better now, so I pronounce better even those sounds which I have not practiced yet with this app. Great work, thanks!

”Love this book. Great for practicing the standard British accent, or "Received Pronunciation (RP)" as they call it. My only wish is that they had more text examples for each chapter.”

”VERY GOOD FOR THOSE WHO NEED TO IMPROVE THE ACCENT”.

”This is a fabulous book! I'm a management accountant, but because of my strong Polish accent, I sometimes felt that people were treating me like the kebab woman. Now, I listen to the CDs and practice and can see my progress; the method and exercises in the book are really working for me.”

“I bought this book/CD Rom combination to adapt to the British accent of pronunciation. It provides you with a list of readings all enunciated by different British speakers. I thought it makes it more interesting to listen to someone who speaks English with a British accent rather than a local New York accent. I found that many people started noticing my changed accent immediately. They all asked me where I came from and thought I might have come from Boston. In an area where most people speak Spanish or English with a difficult to understand pronunciation, the accent I obtain from practicing repeating the lines on the CD-ROMs is clear and succinct. I highly recommend it. Although I find it annoying to have to pause the CD to give me time to repeat each sentence, I manage to repeat each line. Also the chapters are broken up into pronouncing the various phonemes. I find it refreshing to listen to this CD and to repeat the lines. It changes the image that you project to your audience whether to fellow workers or to an auditorium of people where you are required to give a speech. It is also good for those who speak a foreign language and cannot pronounce English correctly. I always misunderstand what people who use English as a second language say and always get misheard by people whose primary language is not English. So this would help a large group of people if they cared enough to want to speak English in an entertaining and succinct way.”
