New York City Latino Accent
New York Latino/Latina Accent Learning Materials
- The Nuyorican accent materials include recordings of AccentHelp coaches Michelle Lopez-Rios and Jim Johnson guiding you through learning the accent.
- The NYC Latino accent covers a variety of ethnicities in the city of New York, especially Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Mexican, Ecuadorian and Colombian - but the accent may also be spoken by blacks, whites and others who live in some of these largely Hispanic neighborhoods.
- You'll also hear recordings of native speakers, along with a PDF transcript of their conversations so that you can follow along as you listen.
- You''ll get a PDF of the teaching materials, as well as three other formats of the book: a PDF file to print, MOBI for Kindle, and EPUB for other portable readers.
- This accent is appropriate for productions of Our Lady of 121st Street, In the Heights, and other plays. You also hear it in films like West Side Story and White Men Can't Jump.
- All of the sound files are in MP3 format so that you can play them on your computer, load them onto your phone, or burn them to a CD.
- You'll receive a link via email so that you can download all of the materials as ZIP files directly to your computer.
- You'll also get future updates for free! (last update: 2020)
