Alright, hey guys. This is Ashley. Yes, my name is Ashley, but I'm proud of it. It's okay. And uhmm. I've was asked to do another American accent video. Because, I've been practicing a lot lately. And, umm. I think it's getting pretty good. Yeah, so. OKay, so. I'm going to give you a few tips on the American accent, and how to maintain your character or your soul while doing your American accent. So. First off I'm just going to give you a little example. "Hello, My name is John. My name is John... uhmm... John Stamose. and umm. I'm going to read this book to you right now. Oh look it's a Sport magazine. 'Get it, Get it, show it, do it. It's almost quint that sentences still have spaces between the words seeing as the world operates at this speed.'"

Yeah, so, um.. so you can just read whatever you want, just practice, listen to American people, um, really find what makes them, you know, the tick(?), the sounds, their voices, uh, w-w-what their voice sounds like. The, uh, the movement of their lips um. So you can switch between accents if you'd like. Um,when you get good at it, at least. So, I could, I could pass as an American right? right? Whatever. So,um, tell me what you think of my American accent in the comments below, please, I would love to hear from you, thanks guys.

I stopped at about 1 minute 10 seconds. I tried to add all of the pauses and mumbles a native speaker would use.
