- Get Rid of your Accent Advanced Level The English Speech Training Manual Part II By Linda James & Olga Smith "The non-native speaker aspiring to fluency in English needs this advanced knowledge for getting rid of his accent. This vital book will guide him in improving his delivery, mastering English names and colloquialisms and displaying his ease and command in speaking in public. " John Kennedy Melling, Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Fellow of the Royal Society of Art, author, broadcaster and critic. ''I was struggling because I was stuck at the intermediate level of English for a long time. Then I bought the first book by these authors, Get Rid of your Accent, which helped me tremendously with improving my accent. I was waiting for this new book, and its so useful for my fluency and sounding more English!" Laurent Blanchard, MS, IT BI Project Manager, Paris ''Its a brilliant book, and it has already changed my life. Among the most useful features are wonderful fluency exercises, lots of idioms, examples of onomatopoeia and pronunciation of British place names (which had always puzzled me, and marked me out as a foreigner). The book a/so made me a more interesting speaker by adding variety to my voice, using the 4 Ps method. I recommend this book to all professionals of foreign origin, because staying competitive in a professional env i ronment requires that one be a competent communicator.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
