- Who are these lessons for?

- Is it possible to eliminate an accent?
That is dependent on many factors. In general, the younger a person is, the easier it is to "lose" one's accent or change from one accent to another. This is especially true if one is a child, immersed within the 2nd language that he/she is learning. Otherwise, unfortunately, it is very difficult to completely 'get rid' of one's accent. It may not be totally impossible, and some adults might even achieve this if they are highly motivated, have a good 'ear' for other languages and pronunciation, spend many hours practicing their speech (as actors/actresses do), and spend as much time as they can with other speakers of that target language.
