Accent reduction is a way for non-native speakers to adopt the natural phonetics and intonations of the language’s native speakers. An accent is a reflection of a person’s background and many people are proud of their accents. However, at times you may find it difficult to effectively communicate in English even though you have mastered the grammatical and syntactical aspects of the language.
