Latin American Accent Learning Materials

  • The Latin American accent materials include recordings of AccentHelp coaches Michelle Lopez-Rios and Jim Johnson guiding you through learning the accent, using the text, as well as a number of recordings of native speakers. They gathered these recordings over the course of many years - bringing their experience to you in this download.
  • Volume 1 of this download comes in four versions of the written materials: a PDF file to print or read on a standard computer, a large-format PDF for portable reading devices, and MOBI for Kindle and EPUB for other portable readers. Volumes 2 & 3 include bonus recordings that are transcribed in PDFs as well.
  • This download includes BONUS tracks of coaches Michelle and Jim leading you through a practice monologue, explaining the sound changes and the intonations of various Latin American accents.
  • Latin American accents have a lot in common with other Spanish-language accents, such as New York Latino/Nuyorican and Castilian Spain, but there are very distinct intonation elements that Michelle and Jim guide you through.
