  • Hey guys, today I want to tackle a small piece of a very large topic: accents.

    大家好,今天我要來談論,大生活中所涵蓋的一個小問題: 口音

  • Youve probably heard the phrases, “accent reduction,” “accent improvement,” “get rid of your accent.”


  • In fact when I tell people that I didn't grow up in the U.S., the most common


  • response I get isYou have no accent!" Usually I just say, “thank you,” but technically,

    大部分我得到的反應都是「妳完全沒有口音啊」 ,通常我都會說聲謝謝,但以專業的角度來看

  • I could say, -“Actually, I do. I have an American accent. You just can't tell


  • it's an accent because you have one, too.” -“Um well this is awkward...maybe learn


  • how to take a compliment?” English is used globally, so it’s spoken


  • differently all around the world. There are national accents, and in English-speaking


  • countries, accents can be different between regions and between social classes.


  • Countries also have thenews anchoraccent, which a lot of people think of as thestandard.”


  • So I suggest that instead of thinking of it as removing an accent, you do what actors do.


  • Actors learn new accents. This is Hugh Laurie. In real life, he has a British accent.

    演員會學習新口音,這是Hugh Laurie,現實生活中,他有英國口音

  • But he played an American doctor on TV for 8 years. The interesting assumption that a


  • lot of Americans will a kind way, they will say, "You managed to lose the accent."


  • I have to sort of explain that I don't..I'm not losing an accent, I'm putting one on.


  • So why would a non-actor want to learn a new accent? One of the reasons is to be better

    那為何不是演員的人會想要學習新口音呢? 有個原因顯而易見

  • understood. Let’s say youre from Italy, and you come to the United States.


  • If we put your accent on a scale, the further you are from the American accent,


  • the more difficult it might be for American English speakers to understand what you're saying.


  • To be better understood, you can learn and practice American sounds to move over on the scale.


  • But how do you do this? I’ll give you some tips here, but I encourage you to do your

    該怎麼做呢? 我會給你一些撇步,但我鼓勵你

  • own research and find techniques that work well for you personally.


  • 1. Find out what elements of your target pronunciation are different from the way you speak now.

    1. 找出目標語和母語的發音的不同之處

  • I’m going to leave a link below to a website calledPronunciation Studio,”


  • where you can find the most common pronunciation challenges for people whose native language is


  • Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Thai, Portuguese, Polish, and many others. If you don't see your native language


  • in this list, let me know in the comments and I'll see if I can help.


  • 2. Create phrases using the sounds that are the most difficult for you and practice them


  • out loud, all the time. Here's Hugh Jackman, another actor who's amazing at doing accents,

    大聲地唸出來,這是Hugh Jackman,這也是個對口音有相當研究的演員

  • talking about this. "Create a sentence which contains every major vowel or consonant, particularly


  • different from his own and he'll just run that in his head. 'How many times...have I


  • asked Sam whether or not his daughter has a learning disorder.' Right, so that was my


  • sentence. Makes no sense but I'll say that and it just tricks my tongue, my mind and


  • then I can forget it." Remember that your accent is created by the muscles of your throat,


  • jaw, tongue, lips, among others. You have to train them and it's normal for new sounds


  • to feel uncomfortable. You have to practice them consistently until they become more and


  • more comfortable.Two Youtube channels I highly recommend are Rachel's English for breaking

    我極力推薦兩個Youtube 頻道,一個是Rachel's English,主要在破解

  • down American English sound and figuring out how to make them, and Elemental English for

    美式英文腔調的迷思並且找出最適合的發音方式,另一個是 Elemental English

  • awesome explanations of stress, rhythm, intonation, and the musicality of English.


  • 3. Listen to content that uses the accent you want, every single day. Your hearing and


  • your speech are closely connected. You have to be able to hear the sounds in order to


  • make them yourself, and you have to hear them over and over to get your ears used to them.


  • Native speakers have been listening to these sounds their whole lives, so you have a lot


  • of catching up to do. I particularly recommend podcasts because you can listen to them on


  • the go, there are so many to choose from, a lot of them are really interesting, and


  • a lot of them use natural conversation, which is an ideal model.


  • That's it for today, thank you so much for watching. I want to give a quick shoutout


  • to ASAPScience, who posted an awesome video about accents right as I was getting this one ready. It's


  • concise and it's interesting as are all the videos on their channel, so I recommend their


  • channel in general. I'd love to hear from you in the comments about what accent you currently


  • have and if there's another accent you want, then what are some of your struggles with it? As always,


  • if anything I said wasn't clear please let me know. And until next time, take care!
