hi every one how are you im behrouz from persia .im need  to learn english.for work  in us .canada.austrila .ihave torkish &.persin.accent how can ichenge my accent help me

Hi Behrouz,
Your accent will tend to improve as your English does, so the first answer is to continue working on your English and your accent will also improve.  More specifically, to improve your pronunciation it is important to listen to a lot of examples.  Remember, an accent is about more than just the sounds we make; it is also about speed, pauses, linking our words together and so on.  Use the recordings and the transcripts, listen and try to say the text after (or, later, with) the speakers: all this will help you but it will take some time, so be patient.
Good luck!

Don't be panic. just a piece of cake. this is what happened to your invested on brain, it is never spent in vain.

hi dear admin 
I want to ask you some thing important regarding to my improvement in english.
Actually i am so keen to be good speaker in english but difficult to imporve this.
what do you think that how much time should i spend on this website. So finally i  will able to speak and understand english while i got only few months for this.
or do you have any such opportunity that i just speak with some body on differnt topics and listen to them.
So thanks for helping me and others.

Hello asifbox1,
I'm afraid I can't tell you how long to spend on the site!  The longer you spend, the more you'll learn but, of course, we've all got lots of other things to do too so you'll have to make the decision about how long you have to spend on the site.
It's important to practise your speaking as much as possible.  Perhaps you have a friend who is also learning English with whom you can practise - this is a good way to improve.  Listening to natural English is important too, so take a look at the listen and watch section of the site and try some of the audio and video materials there - they will help you.
Good luck with your learning!
Best wishes,
