There are a lot of students who want to lose their accents so that they can sound like native speakers. But when we break this down into what people want to be able to do, it comes down to these three goals:
- they want to be able to speak more easily without thinking too hard,
- they want to be clearly understood,
- they want to understand what other people are saying
And these three goals sound more like “I want to be able to communicate confidently and effectively”, instead of sounding like a native speaker.
In this lesson, Amy and Curtis share some tips on how you can feel more comfortable when you’re speaking English.
