Is Your Poor English Accent
Causing You So Much Grief that
You Can't Bear it Anymore?
Are you required to
talk like a native English speaker
to get ahead in your career?
...Then you must read this today!
Does any of this feel familiar?
- Do you get frustrated, embarrassed or even anxious when you are about to speak in English?
- Do you find that other English speakers can't appreciate your true value and your true personality because of your accent?
- When you are with other English speakers, do you ever feel inadequate?
- Are you always trying to prove or justify yourself, instead of being trusted and treated equal by other English speakers?
My name is Greg Cassagne. I'm a non-native English speaker with a peculiar story, and I'm here to share with you how those with a *gift* for languages manage to speak with an excellent English accent, and how you can do it too.
How would you feel if this happened to YOU:
This is a true story
About 10 years ago, only four weeks after arriving in Australia...
I am on the trading floor, conducting customer surveys for an exciting product launch. The kind of launch you find on the front page of the main newspaper and on the TV news.
And without notice, they send me this guy from Corporate Office. A guy I have never seen before. If you can picture a big, noisy, boisterous, sweaty character who speaks very fast and very loud. Saliva is dribbling from the corners of his mouth as he speaks. He's scratching his sweaty belly with one hand and soaking the saliva up with a tissue in the other.
He's asking me tons of questions without giving me a second to answer. 10 minutes and a million words later, he begins pointing at my folder, the one with the survey results.
He is so excited that his eyes are about to pop out of their sockets. His pointing finger is getting nervous and dangerously close to my folder. So in the snap of a second, I throw the folder in the cabinet behind me, telling him what my boss said: "The survey is confidential I can't give you the results."
All of a sudden, this big, noisy, boisterous, sweaty character freezes: his jaw drops, I can see his thick tongue glaring in his round open mouth. He is staring at me completely speechless. Then he turns to his colleague, who I'm just noticing now (a thin guy who hasn't spoken yet). He mumbles something, and looks at me again with the same expression!
So I repeat myself: "I'm sorry, the survey is confidential, you can't have the results".
I was doing exactly what I had been told to do
A few seconds later, the situation is still unclear. Obviously, something went wrong. My intuition tells me I'm missing the point. It's getting uncomfortable. They are looking at me like I am an alien. Suddenly, they stand up and walk away without a word, leaving a business card behind them on the chair. I look at the names: no idea. I've never seen those guys at Corporate Office.
Half an hour later, my boss is grilling me over the phone. He is deeply
usually polite and composed, but now he calls me a moron.
It turns out I should have shared the results. The big guy is the head of market research and he reports to the Big Boss: the one my boss also reports to; the one who pays for me to be here...
And I've just wasted a whole afternoon of their time. They drove all the way to this side of town, and I turned them down. They needed the last bit of critical information (the survey results) for the Big Boss' imminent presentation of the project to the Board of the Company*. The Big Boss is counting on the presentation to advance his career: he wants the General Manager's role! (*) A 20 billion dollar turnover company at the time.
The Big Boss is completely mad at me: "Who is this foreigner
who can't understand
a word about what's going on in this office?" He wants to have a word with me.
Guess what: it didn't get better
So the next day I'm in the Big Boss' office. My hands are sweating. He motions me to sit down. My boss is next to me, looking sick and scared. It seems I'm on my own. So I'm ready to face the cold shower if I have to.
The Big Boss starts very slowly, painfully slowly with a couple of questions. It feels like a chess game and I'm the novice about to be crushed in three moves by Gary Kasparov...
And as you would expect, only a tenth of what I need to tell him makes it out of my mouth. He is painfully grimacing at every word I say. Then a long silence... He looks at my boss and says: "Does he actually speak English at all?" He's opening his stationary draw and pulls out my CV:
He reads: "English: proficient level" Big silence. "English: proficient level!" he repeats. I can hardly bear the way he is looking down on me in my simple shirt and tie. Then he says: "Next time we sit down to talk business, I want to be able to understand you, and I want you to get what we are talking about in this office. Otherwise you are wasting my time and the Company's money."
How would you feel?
Particularly if your boss told you: "You know the Big Boss wasn't born here, and English is not his first language."
I did work myself out of this death trap and I will share with you how I did it and how long it took me, but there's one thing I couldn't get over about this incident:
I stayed angry and disappointed at myself for a very long time, because I had imagined I would sit in front of the Big Boss for only one thing: to get a promotion after a year or two of loyal hard work. And here I was with my dream shattered to bits only four weeks after getting started.
So, let me ask you this:
How did you learn to speak English?
Did you learn English at school like I did?
Did you notice how the whole time you were learning English, if you were lucky enough to have a native English speaking teacher, that the focus of the class wasn't about pronunciation or accent?
...But rather about grammar and vocabulary? Or about reading paragraphs or listening to dull conversations on overplayed tapes and answering comprehension questions?
Maybe you were the best in the class, you worked really hard and you believed your teacher - like I did - when you were told to write "proficient level" on your CV... Yet your English accent is still bothering you today...
Did you ever go on a linguistic sojourn in the UK, the US, Canada or Australia? Or maybe you are planning to go at some point?
Did you notice how you never come back speaking as well as you imagined? Did you notice how you never really meet any native English speakers outside of your host family if such an option was offered to you?
... But rather, you came back with lots of friends who are either foreigners or folks from your own country of birth. And all of you had a great experience but nobody wants to talk about the lack of results.
Maybe you were the luckiest of the bunch because your host family wasn't doing it for the money, they really spent quality time with you and showed you around. Yet when you compare your learning expectations to your results when returning home, you still feel sorry for yourself.
Did you ever buy the ultimate super-duper magic English home study course with 52 lessons, 24 CDs and 12 interactive DVDs?
Did you ever notice how your beautiful ultimate magic home study course is sitting on the shelf, staring at you gathering dust? Did you ever make it to the 52nd lesson?
Sorry, maybe I am completely wrong because you did finish the whole course, and you even revisited it at least twice in details since you bought it. Yet your accent today isn't quite as good as you want it to be...
You must be getting the point: a good English accent is NOT a guaranteed result of having attended English classes, or having studied English abroad for a months or two, or from following a book and CD/DVD package.
So what about those people out there
with a *GIFT* for
Have you ever met any of those *gifted* people?
They are often hard to spot, but I'm sure you've met a few:
You always find out about their *gift* after they mention something about their history. Something that makes you think:
"Hang on, this sounds odd!
So they didn't grow up in an English speaking country.
How come their English is perfect?"
So you ask them: "Where did you grow up?"
They tell you and it's not an English speaking country (the Big Boss was a German Swiss I was told).
So more questions pop up: Did they go to an English school? Did they spend part of their life in an English speaking country? Was one of their parents a native English speaker?
And your jaw drops as they reply: "I
only spent two years in an English
I even heard once: "I only spent six months over there".
Clearly, those people do have a *gift* for learning the accent, don't they?
But what is the *gift*? What is it made of? Is it a protected secret? Is it genetic? Is it paranormal? Is it brain surgery? Is it a blue pill? And how did they get it?
Have you tried to ask them how they got that *gift*?
I always wanted to know!
I used to be fascinated and looked at them with envy and admiration. Who wouldn't? Aren't they the luckiest people around?
They are always surrounded by native English speakers, enjoying the best conversations and laughing out loud. And all those native English speakers seem to love them, trust them and be their best friend! They never get rejected, you always see them with a smile, they always look self-confident when they talk.
How incredible! I always wanted to know how they did it!
And today I know:
Because for the last ten years, most people can't tell I was NOT born in an English speaking country. When I tell people about my history, they always end up telling me I must have a *gift* for learning languages.
So do you want to know what the *gift* is?
Let me give you a hint: part of it has to do with your exposure: your exposure to native English speakers.
"But hang on,
this sounds odd!!! There are lots of people with years and
of exposure who still sound horrible in English!"
With or without exposure,
you are still going to face
some baffling problems:
|You don't know how to make the most of your time with native English speakers.|
|You don't know what to focus on to learn the accent.|
|You don't know what accent exercises you should do.|
|You don't know how to assess your own accent when you speak English.|
|You never know if you are on the right track and you don't have a way to track your progress.|
|Sometimes you have the wrong exposure and you are unaware of it!|
|Sometimes you have difficulties making contact with native English speakers even though they are around you all day long.|
|You wonder how to surround yourself with native English speakers when, to begin with, they keep avoiding you.|
|Sometimes there's no-one in town with a native English accent and you are stuck wondering "How can I increase my exposure?"|
By the way, I really
got sick of hearing people
telling me it was a *gift*.
I don't like to call it a *gift* anymore, so allow me to call it something else:
AN ALTERNATIVE LEARNING METHOD
Alternative because it's completely unlike what you get taught in English classes, study abroad programs or in any self-study course.
Method because every problem you have read about above has a down-to-earth, methodical solution, and it can be learnt step-by-step.
And after years of hearing people complain about their bad accent and telling me how lucky I am to have the *gift*, I decided to write down the Method and publish it.

your foreign accent and be taken
for a native English speaker,
you will need to:
Find out what it takes to develop a good English accent. Once you know each step in detail, you will be 100% confident you can do it. Nothing will stop you from having the accent you need; and you will receive all the respect, admiration and recognition you deserve.

Can you seize the opportunity?
In just a few questions:
How many years since you sat down for your first English lesson?
How much money have you spent learning English? How much did you spend on books, school fees, linguistic sojourns, proficiency tests, private tuition and magic self-study courses?
At this pace, how long and how much do you think it could take you to master your English accent?
I'm asking you because:
Until today you didn't know Accent Grabber existed. You didn't know about any alternative method focusing on your vital priority: YOUR ACCENT.
Until today, you've spent an astronomical amount of time and hard-earned money doing your best without getting the results you imagined for yourself. You've been dreaming about communicating in English as if you were born bilingual. Yet you are standing far from it!
So let me ask you this:
How much longer do you want to wait? Did you plan to put your career on hold for another five, maybe ten years? When will you get the promotions, the new responsibilities, the trust, the recognition and the respect you deserve?
How much more do you want to spend? Do you need to spend an extra € 8,560 for a language program in Canada or in Australia? Do you need to pay for another 60 sessions of personal tutoring at € 40.00 each?
Isn't it time for change?
Over the years I’ve helped many candidates find jobs in Australia and the UK. I have given them tons of advice. I've spent countless hours of my free time reviewing their CVs and letters, showing them how to reach decision-makers with highly personalised correspondence. As a result, they often got more interviews than average.
But I don't do it anymore.
Because almost predictably, those candidates with a poor accent - the great majority - got knocked back consistently at the first interview over the phone or face-to-face.
I attended some of those interviews and it was sad to see interviewers start very excited about the candidates and suddenly get the “big chill” right when the candidates opened their mouth. That's always a big disappointment for both parties. And for me too.
I've published this information because it's desperately needed.
Because people around the world are calling for reducing
I think we should start reducing the waste of talent, yours included!
