The American Accent Guide Book (3rd Edition) introduces the elements of English speech in a logical sequence and integrates them in their natural contexts. Its organization and approach to training the American Accent takes a system that is complex and makes it easy to understand. The book is divided into eight sections, each with its own numbering sequence and audio. While each section is complete in itself, exercises reinforce skills addressed in previous sections.
