We all want that perfect American accent. How long does it really take to get there and what steps do you need to take?

If achieving a perfect American accent is a lot more challenging than you thought, you’re not alone.  Margot Robbie, Chris Helmsworth, Hugh Jackman, they all make it look so easy to sound American.

That’s because they’ve done the work and continue to do the work.  If only there was a magic pill to instantly sound American but unfortunately it just takes some time, patience and a whole lot of dedication to the learning process.

My #1 tip is this: Accent awareness. If you aren’t aware of what’s happening inside the mouth it’s going to be very difficult to make those authentic changes you need to do for the American accent and if you’re not changing your placement it will be very difficult to sound and feel natural speaking in the American accent.

Each day commit some time to your practice. Put it in your calendar and really commit to that time. If you’re busy, multi task our training into your day. Don’t just go through the motions. Think about your accent. Be aware. Feel the difference between the two accents. It’s in this awareness where you will find the key to unlocking American accent perfection so start becoming more aware.
