I am in USA for last 14 years almost but still have an accent. I tried hard to get rid of my accent and speek as good as one american born could, but I could do it. Can anyone recommend me anything helpful to correct my accent?
Eric....First, lots of Americans have "accents" that are totally different depending on what part of the country they live in. For instance, I had a very strong Texas accent that I worked years to get rid of because I was teaching drama. I thought my accent would be of no help if my students copied me. Now, I got rid of it ( mostly) by listening to tapes and then mimicking the tape and listening to my mistakes. Lots of practice.
However, were I you, unless you have a strong accent that makes it hard for others to understand you. Just being aware of what you want to change and practicing will help you change it.
