About this Episode

You say "either" and I say "either"
You say "neither" I say "neither"
"Either" "either", "neither" "neither"
Let's call the whole thing off

George & Ira Gershwin

This week on the Fluent Show, I'm answering a listener question about accents.

  • What is an accent?
  • Can your accent change even though you're not trying?
  • Is it possible to learn a different accent?
  • Can you get an accent by listening to podcasts? ...and more mysteries!

Listen to the episode to hear my answers to these questions and find out why my approach when speaking a foreign language is like this:
DO learn pronunciation (IPA if you like)
DON’T worry about your accent
