You'll just have to learn to talk differently, there's no other way to hide your accent.

Yes , some people are real good at it ! Takes a lot of practice ! I know people from all over and they all talk a little different . Actually , I kind of think it's nice and refreshing to hear someone talk with an accent . But you can talk like the other people in a region if you listen and practice hard at it ! Just like here in the States , all kinds of accents in different places ! I personally can use three accents if I want . If you moved here , you would lose your accent over time , if you tried !

A vocal coach. Also, if you know people with no accent, ask them to say a simple sentance, than you repeat it with no accent, then another and so long. But personal I think accents are pretty awesome.

I personally had great difficulty when I moved from the North to the South in the 70's. People were very judgemental, and I admit, my attitude added to it. I love where I live and cherish my life here. I wouldn't change who you are. You can contribute, and that's all that matters. Why would you want to be "like" everyone else. We are who we are!!!

Actually, having accents should make you proud because it is a symbol of the country or region wherein you came from...You must not hide it because it is natural and a trademark of your origin.

I was born in Australia and I started talking there so I had an accent. You can't really hear it anymore except when I say certain words. It all depends on the accent you want. Try to practice that accent and you're other accent may fade away. After awhile, accents tend to go away if you live somewhere else that doesn't have that accent. Just wondering, what accent do/did you have? Hope I helped! Good luck hun! :)

I never knew I had that much of an accent until my best friend married a guy from Boston. We live in MS. So as you can imagine our country twang mixed really well together. The wedding was a hoot! Just for fun we all got together and sang on their wedding video. You can't understand a word no matter where you were from! Good times... have to agree with everybodyvelse. don't change unless your going into acting and even then if you're from the South too don't change it because Hollywood can't do a real Southern accent correctly. Probably can say that about alot of places but the fake Southern makes me cringe.

If you really want to hide it you'll have to learn a new accent and make it second nature. I'm an American but I can pass myself off as a Brit or a Russian just cause I can replicate the accents well. There'll always be a little trace of the original accent, but it should remain well concealed if it really concerns you.

When you are constantly around people that talk a certain way you emulate them, and your accent will diminish with time. If you are around people with your same accent, it may take longer for you to naturally pick up on and use the language of others.But I suggest learning a southern drawl, it is easy and can cover a multitude of accent issues.
