Accent Training?

Hey, curious what people's current methods are for learning accents? Do you just watch YouTube videos or work with accent coach each and every time prior to an audition?

It is very good to get you started, I also recommend learning the basics of the language using Duolingo too. that way you have a good idea of why as well as how.

If the accent is language based... like German or polish that is.

Thanks Jimmy, im actually working on an accent training app www.accentify.co.uk right now, so getting this feedback is really useful.

My co-founder is an accent coach, so we really want to know how people currently work on accents. That archive is a great resource. Do you use it everytime prior to an audition?

Generally once I have an accent it's permanent, I can just flip from one to the other. but if you are new to developing accent it may well be difficult to get started. I'm happy to consult.
