Listen and Repeat: Accents and Star Wars

Does your accent make you nervous about speaking to people in English?

You are not alone. Many English language learners who have accents are nervous about using their English.

Actor Diego Luna did not hide his Mexican accent in the movie Star Wars. And he is great!

Here’s a clip:

One fan wrote to Diego, “For all of us who have an accent when speaking English, thanks and congratulations.”

Now, listen and repeat this interview with Diego Luna on the TV show Ellen.

Listen many times, there is no [CC] on the video, but you can pause and repeat as much as you need.



So don’t be nervous about your accent! Speak loud and proud 🙂
