English Accent and Pronunciation

Description

You don’t have to sound like an American nor a British person when you’re   speaking. You use your own English accent which you feel the most comfortable with. However, It’s important that the other people understands what you’re saying. So, this program is going to focus on how to command understandable English accent and pronunciation which makes other people comfortable enough to listen. Furthermore, this program will give chances to impersonate many different accents via various materials in order to maintain self-confidence and also widening the ability of listening.
