Tips for improving a German accent?
The title is self explanatory, how can I minimize my American accent as much as possible? Tips for properly positioning the tongue or jaw, and tips for making vowels sound more German. Any tips would be appreciated.
The best way is definitely to find a tandem partner who is a native speaker and practice speaking to them. Ask them to correct your pronounciation as much as possible. The hardest sound for me was the hard r, followed by ch and then the umlauts. You could try practicing the r by yourself till you get the hang of getting your uvula to vibrate.
