      Came here to advertise? Read first   12/05/2016

      Over the last few months, there's been a huge increase of members coming here just to advertise their own products, services, or whatever.
      This is fine, but the "General Discussions" section is not the right place. If you came here to advertise anything you made or provide yourself, do this here.
      If you came here to advertise anything you love to use, do it here. Thank you for your understanding. And remember: anything we consider spam is subject to the ban hammer. Any smash is available free of charge.

  1. I'm from the mountains of the US state of Idaho, and although it may not seem like the cultural hub of accent diversity, I still manage to have a pretty thick accent that is difficult for a lot of foreigners to understand. This is a problem for me since I have a lot of friends who speak English as a second language and I travel a lot. I like my natural accent for when I'm talking to friends and with my family, so I don't want to lose it, but I do want to perfect a level of clearer higher English. My problem arises from the fact that I know from previous attempts at learning various other English dialects/accents that it blends into my native speech and I struggle to keep them separate. I know there must be techniques for this since many people learn multiple dialects in other languages, but so far I'm at a loss. Thanks
