The reason why I joined this program is because people could not recognize my English as English. They thought maybe I was speaking Russian or Portuguese to them. And I wanted them to understand me immediately – and I achieved it. People can now understand me.
When we think about improving our accents, we usually think of particular sounds, like “I don’t get the American R”, or “I don’t get the vowels”.
But the huge improvement that I’ve made was in confidence. Now, I guess it’s the most important thing.
