Scandinavian Accent Learning Materials

  • The Scandinavian accent materials include recordings of AccentHelp coach Jim Johnson guiding you through learning the accent, using the text, leading you through the accent in a practice monologue, and three volumes of recordings of native speakers. 
  • You'll get a PDF of all of the written materials, plus the teaching materials come in three more formats: a small-format PDF, a MOBI for Kindle and an EPUB for other portable readers. All of the audio is in MP3 format, which you download directly to your own computer, and then you're free to listen to it on a mobile device or burn it to CD.
