    Make sure you're listening to a lot of the target accent, and practise different mouth positions until you can do it. Try recording yourself and comparing it to a British speaker recording. Check these out for sources:

    Hi Salman,

    I totally understand your feeling of speaking good English but with some annoying accent.

    It has troubled me for a long time and even now I am still not totally confident in speaking to the local people, but before I came to Australia from China no one has ever told me that I have an accent. I was over-confident with my oral English before & afterwards I am now under-confident with it. Why is it so hard for the local people (Aussie) understand me? Actually at the beginning, I couldn't understand them either.

    So now I am insisting on watching TV everyday for at least 1 hour to assure that I am getting involved in this local environment in their language. So if you want to reduce your accent, my advice would be talking to Bristish People,or listing to some tapes & radio as the other guys suggested.

    Take your time in doing it, but be aware that you will never get rid of your mother accent totally.

    Lucy
