Do You Want to Improve Your American Accent? Give Me 30 Minutes a Day

Do you want to improve your American accent? If so, you are in the right place! I’m going to show you three simple exercises that you can do to speak with a better American accent. Here they are!

1. Read aloud to look for mistakes in your pronunciation

Read aloud something written in English, for example a book, an article or a blog post and record yourself while doing it. Then look for mistakes in your pronunciation. Note down things that were difficult for you and concentrate on eliminating these mistakes.

2. Sing along

Find some good American songs, find lyrics to them and sing or rap along. Listen closely to the singer or rapper and try to imitate him or her. Practice for at least a few times, until you master the song that you chose.

3. Watch videos with subtitles

Watch videos or movies with subtitles and repeat after the actors/speakers. VOA News Special English videos are excellent to practice with – there are subtitles and the speakers speak very slowly. You can also watch regular American movies – this will be even more effective, because you’ll listen to the real, spoken language.
