Course Theme

Many countries all over the world use English as their first language. While the pronunciation varies from nation to nation, accents can also vary within each nation. It is my goal to teach you the most commonly used accent in American films and movies: Western United States Accent.

Accent consists of five parts, pronunciation, intonation, liaisons, voice quality and geographic area. This class covers it all as is spoken by native English speakers in the western United States. 

The western United States is the largest dialect region in the United States, and the one with the fewest distinctive phonological features. It also used in many forms of media, making it one of the most easy accent to learn. These facts can both be attributed to the fact that the West is the region most recently settled by English speakers, and so there has not been sufficient time for the region to develop unique phonetic characteristics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_English_regional_phonology)
