David’s Approach to Learning General American Accent

With this Accent-Reduction method, you will first Americanize two speech traits before working on pronunciation. You first create more American-sounding intonation and rhythm using David’s respected “Jump Up-Step Down” method. You then learn his “Mid-Tongue Muscularity” technique that helps you create the resonance or voice placement of Standard American English. After that, these first two skills will help you create the American pronunciations of vowels and consonants. Finally, you can begin working on the more advanced pronunciation features of American English. These include Final Consonants, Medial T’s, -ED endings, and separating L from R and S from Z.

David Alan Stern published the first edition of The Sound & Style of American English in 1987. Since then, he has taught this effective and enjoyable method to hundreds of ESL teachers, speech pathologists, and voice & speech trainers. First, David offered his own teacher-training workshops for many years. Then he was invited to demonstrate his method at national, state, and local conferences of TESOL and ASHA. In addition, his corporate clients have included executives from Bateman-Eichler-Hill-Richards, Beech Aircraft, NCR, TRW, Union Carbide, and Mitsubishi & Wells Fargo Banks.
