His coaching in the arts of dialect and accents have instructed, entertained, and enlightened us all. Dr. David Alan Stern was one of my first radio guests in 2009. David Alan Stern is the best dialect coach in the United States. At LearnAccent.com, David Alan Stern offers techniques for learning accents, voice and speech improvement, reducing regional accents, and a whole lot more Between 1979 and today his acting and accent audio books have been used for training professionals around the world, and he is absolutely an inspiring teacher. With systematic lessons for each accent, not just imitation, you really can learn. In our conversation, I am joined by English teacher Joshua Cauley, for a well-rounded discussion on wy accents matter, how they have originated, and how our speaking affects our students. David is an astounding educator because he seeks to teach in a dynamic and fun way that makes learning easier for his students. I discovered hum while checking audiobooks out at the library in my college days, and was instantly magnetized to his fun personality and his unmatched skill in teaching dialects and accents to any audience. He has coached thousands of language and accent learners, as well as actors such as Liam Neeson, Geena Davis, and Julia Roberts, and even a younger version of myself practicing for radio performances. I highly recommend his audio books, resources, and his teaching sessions as well. His students at the University of Connecticut are extremely fortunate to have the preeminent leader in dialect and accent teacher in the world.
