3rd Edition
Ann Cook - All books by this author

The much-anticipated third edition of Ann Cook's highly acclaimed American Accent Training, with 5 audio CDs, is packed with new methods to easily pick up the standard American accent. This best-selling book has four fascinating new chapters covering the intriguing psychology of accent acquisition, American voice quality, a pronunciation overview and an ESL instructor's guide. The new CDs feature talented and professional male and female voices, carefully selected to represent that perfect American accent. With 30 years of extensive research, the unique AAT methodology has been refined to teach the American sound quickly and easily:
  • Voice quality (the deep, rich tone of the American sound)
  • Pronunciation (all the vowels, consonants, blends and diphthongs)
  • Intonation (syllable stress rules and word stress in a sentence)
  • Linking (liaisons phonetically transcribed so students can see the sound)
Using comprehensive intonation and pronunciation exercises and tests, students swiftly learn the real American accent. At the same time, listening comprehension improves dramatically, both for literal understanding and empathetic awareness. Additional materials include detailed nationality guides for ten languages and accent variations (Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Spanish, French, German, Russian, Korean, Arabic, and the US Southern accent), access to comprehensive websites (AmericanAccent.com and AmericanEnglish.US), and referral to a qualified telephone analyst for an individual diagnostic speech analysis at (800) 457-4255.

American Accent Training has been leading the way with students and business people since 1991. Going where no accent book has gone before, AAT continues to set the standard for all to follow, for anyone learning or teaching the American accent.
