    1. Das Buch ist gut aufgebaut. Der Lehrstoff ist umfangreich und sehr gut. Die training chapters sind ebenfalls sehr gut.Ich hatte allerdings Probleme mit den CD's. Die CD's starten nicht automatisch. Wahrscheinlich liegt es an der Kompatibilität der Auflage von 2009. Die Nummerierung der Tracks (Spuren) stimmt nicht zwischen der Cd 2, CD3 und CD 4 mit der Nummerierung der Tracks im Buch überein. CD 1 ist ok. Es ist sehr muehsam wieder zu starten, wo man aufgehört hat. Die Kompatibilität mac [...]

    2. I owned the first edition and have been listening to the CDs and reading the book for many years. In the second edition the author generously added about 1/5 more very helpful audio files to the book. The four CDs are replaced by hundred of MP3 files with sequential label to match the book's text.

    3. I'm an American culture coach and I use this book with my clients. My clients are professionals who know their areas of expertise very well, but know they aren't always understood in the workplace. I like that the book has sections dedicated to specific native speakers of other languages. I also love that it not only covers consonants and vowels, but phrasing and where the stress falls in words and sentences (eg. the difference between "Are you at HOME?" and "Are YOU at home?"). It's a very thor [...]

You have no idea how grateful I am for being able to come across her videos on youtube that then motivated me to purchase the whole material along with the book. Trust meeeeeeee There are no other accent reduction courses out there better than this.!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As a native we don't really pay attention to those details that actually are literally the foundation However she really knowwwwwsss everythinggggggg to make you speak like a [...]

    5. This has all the material I am looking for in teaching students to recognize individual sounds of English and some basics of how sounds connect in sentences and phrases. My complaint is that the last section of the book is a waste--pages of "what problems do speakers of this language have," most of which say, Study the whole book. Also, the writer seems to think that what students need is to *understand* the differences between sounds in their language and English. That may be a starting point, [...]

    6. Very useful book. As a immigrant in Silicon Valley, I always had a hard time making me understand. That is not good if you work in an office as an engineer and you want to work in the future in a big company, so I ended relying in written communication instead. After reading this book three times (yeap, you read well, three times) I improved my pronunciation a lot, and now I pay more attention to how the native speakers talk and relate it to the rules. Sometimes I still speak as Gloria in mo [...]
