If you are an English learner who wants to improve your pronunciation and sound more like a native speaker, you might be interested in learning from Dr. Alex Obskov, a linguist, professor of English as a second language, and American accent coach.

Dr. Alex Obskov has over 20 years of experience in researching and teaching English pronunciation to students from different countries and backgrounds. He has a Ph.D. in education and linguistics, and he is the founder of the American Accent Training Program, a unique and effective method to teach the sound system of American English.

The American Accent Program is based on three main principles: individual approach, 2D sound motion technology, and intellectual interaction.

The individual approach means that Dr. Alex Obskov tailors the learning process to each student’s needs, goals, and preferences. He analyzes the student’s speech patterns, identifies the areas of improvement, and provides personalized feedback and guidance throughout the program.

2D Sound Motion Technology (SMT) is a technology that uses two-dimensional visual and auditory feedback to help students master the correct pronunciation and fluency of American English. This technology allows students to understand how to produce the sounds of American English using their tongue, lips, teeth, jaw, and vocal cords while practicing American Accent Training.

Intellectual interaction is a process of exchanging ideas and information between Dr. Alex Obskov and the student while mastering the American accent. This process involves various educational and psychological approaches that Dr. Alex Obskov applies to enhance the student’s learning and motivation.

The American Accent Program consists of three courses: an audio course, a video course, and an interactive course. Each course covers different aspects of American pronunciation, such as consonants, vowels, intonation, and emphasis. The courses are delivered through an intelligent learning management system called Moodle, which allows students to access the materials anytime and anywhere.

The American Accent Training also offers different options for students to learn from Dr. Alex Obskov directly. Students can choose from one-on-one sessions – in these sessions, the student gets the most attention, feedback, and personal practice with Dr. Alex to succeed in learning more than 70%; group classes – in these sessions, the students share learning practice and experience with other students in the group or single sound session – if the student has a problem with understanding and pronouncing a specific American sound, it will be the great option. These sessions are conducted virtually via Google Meets, and they are designed to provide students with intensive practice and feedback.

The American Accent Training Program has helped thousands of students from over 20 countries to improve their pronunciation and confidence in speaking English. Many students have reported positive results in their personal and professional lives after completing the program.

“…I have been working with Dr. Alex Obskov for six and a half months to improve my pronunciation, and I appreciate him for the fantastic job he has done with my accent. I came to the US several years ago, and it was challenging for me to understand people, to speak my mind, and to feel confident in the way I sound. There are eleven sessions that Alex has designed perfectly to target the most important sounds in the American language. I have had a very thick Russian accent, and the manner of speaking was different. Alex has been so patient with me, helping me out to understand the American consonants and vowels, word stress, and intonation patterns. I would say that I often struggle with the feeling of low confidence in my English speaking, but Alex has helped me change my mind completely. Thanks a lot!
