    I loved this video and the fact that you’ve highlighted this mistakes. It’s a different perspective and it’s really helpful. Still practising the r’s and I do believe in the importance of the american accent foundation. Also it was new to me the last point and I’m sure that is going to be crucial in the future.
    Thank you so much Katherine.

    The idea of framing the scene and dialogue from an American point of view is a great one! I hadn’t thought of that as so influential, but of course, it is. Thank you, great lesson.

What was really interesting to me, Building the scene from an American point of view. Excellent tips. Yes, it will be hard but with time and patience, I’ll get there. Many thanks.
