Reduce your accent when pronouncing English, with the expertise from an acclaimed specialist in the area

Developed by acclaimed speech consultant and accent specialist Susan Cameron, Perfecting Your English Pronunciation features her successful method, which focuses on the anatomical placement of sound and on the musculature used in articulation. Where other accent reduction/English pronunciation products rely on solely mimicking of audio sounds, this work focuses visually, audibly, and narratively on the physical ability to speak English, noting that many sounds of English may be difficult for you because some tongue positions used in English may not be used in your native language.

The 45-minute DVD introduces you to mouth and jaw exercises to prepare you for English, then demonstrates mouth formations and tongue placement using other nonnative speakers like you. You will see and hear how English sounds--enabling you to become more and more comfortable conversing with native English speakers as you go through the program.

Susan Cameron is Master Teacher and Chair of Voice and Speech, CAP21, New York University, and is dialect coach for feature film and TV. She is a specialist in accent reduction, and has taught thousands of students from all over the world, most famously, in 1993, Japanese prime minister Hosokawa in preparation for his United Nations address before the General Assembly--the first given in English by a Japanese prime minister. Cameron has consulted for Cartus Language Specialists in working on accent modification with the human resources departments of many international corporations who outsource technological help. Her clients have included foreign executives at American Express and actors wishing to perfect an American accent. She has taught nearly every accent in the world.

    Returned this as soon as I noticed it was American in origin as I'm not looking to have a European accent replaced by an American one. I feel mislead by the title 'Perfecting Your English Pronounciation'. There should have been the word 'American' in there somewhere.

    Very good, though for some mysterious reason it 'frames' the book as a boon for business-people. However, that's just a couple of spots, like in the Intro. All the important chapters have nothing to do with that, they just concentrate on the pronunciation issues and, near the end, word stress and sentence stress. The DVDs are a bit of a hash. My ten year old grandson can format a movie onto a playable DVD but it seems to elude this publisher. Doesn't seem to have occurred to them to just load it as an mp4 onto the CDs along with the audio tracks so people can play it on their computers. I had to extract the movie myself. But still worth buying.

    Bought this book, the DVD is defective, I emailed the publishers in the US and they simply replied to me saying "sorry!". Very Frustrating!

    This is an excellent product. I think students will enjoy the video material. I see the audio material as well as exercises are challenging specially at more advanced levels with strategies for word stress, sentence stress, thought groups, among others. I have used materials in and out of the USA since the 1980s and I believe this book is quite complete.
