"Just finished the 1st lesson for 21Accents’ American Accent Training Course, and it's AMAZING! The hand gestures that Amy does on the video to help with the sound placement work like a charm! I was able to recreate the correct sounds right away! I feel so good about it! Cant wait to finish the course and sound like an American! Yay!
Thank you Alex and Amy for those videos. I was sure that the road to achieving a Standard American accent was pretty bumpy and hard, and I will have to minimize using my native languages as much as possible (a few of my fellow actors do that), but it turns out it's a joyful ride! Thank you again!"

"I'm so glad I found 21 Accents and met Alex. Thanks to online training and coaching sessions, I can finally identify my mistakes and correct my pronunciation with incredible accuracy. I teach American students daily and it is imperative for me to improve my very "French touch" accent. I finally found people who know what they're talking about! Amy is an expert and Alex embodies all the possibilities that this method offers. All in great energy and fun!
- Pauline G, French Teacher
"I'm an actor and was looking for a way to improve my American Accent when I stumbled across 21 Accents..
It was the first time that I had encountered a way of teaching it that made it practical, and thus so much more enjoyable.
I'm over 60% there, and just listening to the R one a few times because it's catching me a little, but I'm delighted with the course and couldn't recommend it more."
- Colman Hayes, Actor

"I have gone through speech therapy my entire life. I have also been teased about a speech impediment my entire life. No one could convince me to open up and really work on my voice until I met Amy. She creates a very inviting and encouraging environment. Working on a “downfall” is such a vulnerable time but with Amy, I was always eager to receive feedback from her."
- Bo Roberts, Model, Actor
"Amy’s approach to teaching is incredibly supportive and her techniques provide proven results FAST. Within a few short weeks not only was I able to hear a difference in my accent, but so was my voice over coach and agent. If you want to speak as a true blood American, Amy is the instructor you need to work with."
- Lisa Sowden, Voice-Over Actor
"Since working with Alex, I'm much more aware of the mistakes I make, and while it’s hard to correct them all the time during a performance, the good thing is that at least now I'm aware of them. And most of all I feel lucky having him as a teacher; I really appreciate how perfectionist he is and his sharp ear, as well as how flexible and fresh his techniques are. Thank you!!"
- Alex Gonzalez, Actor
An actress/singer/songwriter since the highchair, learning authentic accents has always been part of Amy’s craft.
Since high school, directors would ask her to coach her fellow actors on set, and after the viral success of her 21 Accents video in 2008, she began offering free video tips on YouTube and coaching students around the globe through private sessions and workshops, with exceptional results.
Over the years, Amy has developed a method that is unique in the world, with multi-sensory, fun techniques that are adaptable to all learning styles. Since 2012, she has been passing on these techniques to her protégé, Chief Training Officer Alex Brown, and now to a new team of teachers who can offer this work to an ever-wider audience. With over 40 million views online, the success of her work and videos landed her on the TODAY Show, NPR, Inside Edition, TED talks and more.
