This unusual book and Compact Discs program has special value for foreign-born students and business people who are working, traveling, or going to school in the United States or Canada. Its purpose is to eliminate the speaker's often difficult-to-comprehend accent through training in the rhythms and sound-flow of English as it is spoken in North America. In the process, students will also dramatically improve their English listening comprehension. Durable and convenient Compact Discs replace the cassette tapes that came in this program's first edition. Supplementary materials include colored markers that facilitate speech exercises contained in the book. There is also a hand mirror so students can watch their own lip movements and get them right in the process of learning American speech patterns.Ann Cook is the author of 'American Accent Training (Book and Audio CD, 2nd Edition)', published 2000 under ISBN 9780764173691 and ISBN 0764173693.
