Guys! I want to reduce my Nepalese accent and have a good neutral American accent! Any suggestion, I'd be more than happy! Peace!

What the fug ??? This is embarrassing to see how inferior we feel about our accent... You don't have to sound like an American to speak good english... To be honest, I don't know why I am even posting in this thread. And yes, you, brainjuice is a wanker.

Do it and do something WELL. Do you get that concept MillionDollars?? Why are you so ridden with inferiority complex that you see everything and everybody is superior to you?? Nobody here is "embarrased" as you put it, by their whatever accent they might have. I certainly am not, neither brainjuice - as I understand. We all strive for excellence - do something well. In this case speak as the natives do. Anything wrong with that concept? You know it is not that high of a concept that even your size of a brain would not grasp it. Try, you might. I give everybody benefit of a doubt. I marvel at people who speak foreign language - be it spanish, French, Nepali, Hindi without any (well any might be exaggeration - but you get my drift) accent. That tells something about that individula. Rather than looking at everything with your myopic vision - try to look at the forest. Yours truly -

Silhouette: If you define speaking perfect English = speaking without an accent, you just joined Brainjuice in his Wankers' club. Congratulations... And by the way, who is feeling inferior here ? I would say it's those beding over backwards to imitate something that is not naturally theirs. Fug the accent, just speak the way everyone understands you... My Scottish friends don't seem to be learning American accent even though they have to repeat them a few times in few occasions..

MillionDollors, Exactly. ur scottish friends dont see a need to learn american accent. This thread was for someone who wants to learn American Accent. Its not mandatory to have an American Accent but if someone wants to learn, what the fug is ur fuggin problem. Quit humilating ppl here. There is no need of that. Stay happy with ur own accent and dont bullcrap on ones who want to change theirs.

Bidhan408 myfren claims that best way to gain accent is by shadow reading in his first post. Then on his second post suggests that not him but Cambridge University claims that. hmmm ..... Make up your mind dude. They have published books rey, ha ha ha oh yeah Jerry Springer also published books on relationships too does that make him an expert in relationships ? he he and finally No I have never heard of Cambridge or Oxford University Mr Prof of Linguistics. he he he Listen to all these ALL OF A SUDDEN LINGUISTIC EXPERTS here not realizing they themselves have accents. ha ha ha Regardless of what you do....no matter where you go you can never speak like natives. YOU CAN ACT LIKE ONE one but YOU WILL NEVER BE A NATIVE. Thts why the NEWARS have that TA TA and MA MA when they speak Nepali all their life. Its nature vs Nurture. You can never tame NATURE, but man thinks it can. he he he keep trying !!

I am sorry if I stepped into some people's toes who make a damn fool out of themselves trying to copy something as vein as accent... Apology is especially owed to Sidster who seems to be a very enthusiastic about "American Accent"..

If you are in the Boston area, check this out. Other cities too should have adult education /ESL centers that might be able to help.

Hahahaha... This thead is so funny. If you read it from statin to thispoint--->. You will know what I am talkin about. One poor kid asked for help to improve his accent (native or not,english oranegreji) but ppl diverted the thead to linguistic discussion. Finally, the kid (brainjuice) got tired of it and thanked eveybody for nothing. Hahahahaha watta mockery of kuakani:(

What mockery, what are you talking about? Brainjuice rose above everything and took the most sound suggestion, not that he got tired of it. Just by looking at the evidence presented here. Anyway, who are you? His spokesperson? JK
