Canadian Accent

The Canadian accent can be very similar to a neutral American accent - when it's light, but heavier Canadian accents are very distinct from most American accents. You'll hear recordings from all over Canada, from Toronto all the way west to Vancouver Island - with the sound of bald eagles in the background!

Canadian Accent Learning Materials

  • The Canadian accent materials include recordings of AccentHelp coach Jim Johnson guiding you through learning the accent, along with Carolyn Johnson providing a female voice for the practice sentences. Jim also leads you through the accent in a practice monologue.
  • You'll get additional volumes of native speaker recordings, including a PDF transcript of their conversations that you can follow along with.
  • You'll get a PDF of the teaching materials, plus three more formats of the book: a PDF for printing, a MOBI for Kindle, and an EPUB for other portable readers.
  • This set of materials focuses on the Canadian accent west of Quebec. You can find French-Canadian recordings in the French materials, and we'll also offer Eastern Canadian accents in future materials, as they can be quite different from those of Central and Western Canada.
  • This AccentHelp download focuses on Canadian English speakers and will walk you through a stronger version of the accent, though you'll also find out what lighter Canadian accents sound like. 
  • 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!

5% of all profits on AccentHelp accents go to food banks.
