Accent Error Pattern: Americans use flapped t, stopped t, and aspirated t in words. You might use the aspirated t for all, or a different type of T.
How to Correct the Errors: Learn common words that use flap T, as this is the pattern which will have the biggest impact on your speech sounding more American.
Practice Steps: Try flap T words: better, matter, water, city, Saturday, Seattle, little
Repeated phrase practice: better _____ (speech, business, communication, than that)
a little _____ (bit, busy, hot, tired, much)
