Assunto:  Got a Brazilian accent?
 
Mensagem: 

It is a complicated matter and only the one who lives abroad can understand how important it is to reduce your accent. To blend in. To not be looked different.

 

It seems to me a good way to reduce the foreign accent is using a voice recorder. First you tape/record a native speaking from a tv/radio show. Only a small excerpt. Then you record yourself (your lady friend). And then you compare both. Repeat the process until you are satisfied with the results.
