Re: How to speak in a Neutral accent?

 A neutral accent is a bit of an oxymoron. I think what you mean is transatlantic English, ie English spoken without obvious regional influences so that it can be understood universally.

I speak with a transatlantic accent, due to growing up in the US (the south) but moving to Europe as an adult (UK, Sweden and Norway). People rarely know what country I'm from, not even other Americans.
 
Living in Scandinavia, I've learned to use words and pronunciation that are understandable to non-native speakers. I also picked up a lot of pronunciation habits in the UK that neutralise my former southern accent tendencies (which were never very obvious). And spelling, apparently.

Neutral Accent

It's really helpful to have a neutral accent.

I am from the Philippines and the medium of instruction is English. I can say that I write better than I speak English. I used to work with an American company which required communicating with our head office in Palo Alto, California.

My problem is I can speak fluent English but my American counterparts would tell me I have a heavy accent. I guess like alphi, assimilation and exposure to the language is a big help in neutralizing whatever accent we have.

Neutral Accent?

I don't know what would be considered a neutral accent. It depends where you are and to whom you're speaking. A neutral accent in South London differs greatly from that in West Texas.

If your grew up in your native country it is very hard to get rid of your accent. I have known people that have been living in the US for 20 years but still have Filipino accent. Even doctors or professionals that came to the US still have accent. I don't know what it is. Some people are trying really hard to speak American way with a little bit of slang,but it sounds funny to me. Smile
