Can I change my accent?

When you speak a language that is not your native (such as American English) having an accent is all natural. However if your foreign accent makes it difficult for people to understand clearly what you say, you can improve your accent with appropriate accent reduction training. When you starting your accent reduction training, it is important to remember that losing your foreign accent or trying to sound like a native American English speaker should not be the goal.
