How do you lose an accent without traveling to an english speaking country?
>>
With great difficulty.

Hire a dialect coach.

>not wanting to have perfect mastery of the language coupled with an accent
>wanting to lose that unique touch

Attend an international school or work in an English-speaking environment. I've never been to the US yet I have an American accent. Oh, and I'm Italian.

Are dialect coaches expensive?

>>16760105
I'm german and I'm too shy to speak with other people english, it really prevents me to form online friendships because everyone asks me if we can't use voicechat and I always have to decline, I hate my accent too much

>>16760116
I thought about visiting an international studies group at my university, but like I said, I'm too shy because of my accent

Nigga, use Google.

I have a problem with my russian accent as well as you,but i am okay with it. The russian way of prouncing some words and producing sounds seems cute to those i talk to. I don't mean that you shouldn't try to get rid of your accent, but if there is no way to fix and you feel shy then embracing the drawbacks of your speech may probably help you get over your shyness.

Implying this will solve it.

Find people to talk to from England.

Been skyping with an English girl for a few months, a few times a week. I learned how they pronounce certain things, and now I sound like a native Englishman.
>>
What kind of english accent do you have op?
>>
I'm not OP, but could you guys advice some good site or app for finding a native english-speaking colloqutor. I've tried to find a colloqutor many times on specialised sites, but failed. Seems like 99% of those who use such apps/sites are in for finding sexual partner and most of them are gays.No one hasn't really wanted to talk to me and work on language skills even though i was more than willing to help with learning my language in return.
>>
Get on one of those language exchange websites where someone wants to learn your language, you can search by ability so they can have a similar ability to you and you won't feel embarrassed. Are you German?
>>
>>16760579
The vast majority of non english speakers want to learn english. Comparatively very few english speakers want to learn another language.
>>
>>16760598
Those who were born in English-speaking countries are so damn lucky
>>
>>16760617
Your english is fine, what are you moaning about?
>>
>>16760626
I've spent a lot of time to learn it while those who speak it from childhood were spending their time on something more useful.
>>
>>16760663
so what? you've made an achievement, and a big one that will help you in so many ways. stop comparing yourself to others, and live your own life. I'm sure there are things that you have seen or done at a young age that have given you an advantage later on in life.

>>16760579
I used conversation exchange and t was pretty good, nobody wanted anything else than to just learn the language
>>
Talk to other people in English. Believe it or not, most people who speak English are very chill when they are talking with somebody who is learning the language. You ate trying and they are much more willing to help you and to take the time to try and understand you.
>>
>>16760579
Livemocha is a good site to learn any language. You can not only learn conversation with it, but it also has an option where you can live chat with other native speakers and because you speak a different language, you can help others who want to learn your language too.

I always tried to embrace it, but I just feel to uncomfortable with it.

>>16760562
German

>>16760585
What are some language exchange sites, I never knew that something like that existed. And ye, I'm german

>>16761190
I tried to talk to english people in the past, but everyone just said Heil Hitler and stuff like that, I don't know, maybe people just dislike germans or maybe me individually.
>>
Instead of speaking the letters in your language's syllables, try speaking the fucking language correctly.
>>
>>16762263
Go to live mocha. That site has people that genuinely want to learn a new language. And the program for learning the languages are really good. You need to have a mic in order to use it and the chat is one on one, so you can have a person that can help you with English and or you can help someone who wants to learn German.
