Wooooow so many jealous people here, YOU'RE GREEEN WITH ENVY, no doubt she speaks English fluently and for a foreign who almost had lived her entire life in Russia ,she definitely has a great American accent, you guys are picking on her but i'm pretty sure you can't even speak as well as she does with this awesome accent, CALM DOWN you don't need to indicate these tons of jealousy, just try to get over it 😂😂
She speaks really clearly. I have been in a couple English speaking countries but many people don't even speak as clearly as she does. She's definitely way above average. However, I guess speaking w accents doesn't mean that your English is not good. The thing is how clearly you speak to get your ideas across in my opinion. An obsession with a particular accent can make you neglect other important parts of learning a language. Plus, having accents can be unique and an advantage if it's communicable.
I live and work in Silicon Valley as a Web Developer. I've moved to the US from Russia when I was a little girl and I still have just a slight accent left (barely noticeable). When I speak, everyone thinks I am an American, although I look like your typical pretty Russian girl. I can tell you that you haven't mastered your American accent. Had you moved to the US when you were 10 years old, sure, you would speak like an American. But I still hear thick Russian accent present in your speech. Other than that, good job on learning English and making it here.
Good evening Marina! Thank you for your channel! I've got a guestion. On 11.28 you say: "you have the native speakers instantly correcting the text". Is it possible to use "correcting" instead of "correct" (simple form) in such causative sentences?
Hello, guys! I see that some people are trying to discuss about her accent just it is american or something like this
I would like to say that it does not really matter that she has an american accent or does not
the main point is that she is an up-level speaker and eager to help us to be better, I am not trying to compliment her as I am a learner and I have learned plenty of things by the help of Marina
Thank you very much Marina for doing great job
The accent doesn't matter, hey, you can do things that native speakers cannot! Living abroad, having a visa + fluency and all the stuff like this is more impressive than just have no accent since these things are literally the challenge for so many people! This victory isn't like just be born and grow up in the USA, it is a much more complicated thing.
Who was born in Russia, you know...You have choices within your country, but all the ways are wrong.
I think you still have a notable Russian accent, but you sound clear enough for me to understand you.
If I may ask, at what age did you come to the United States?
Because age really does matter when it comes to accents.
If you see this comment, please let me know.
Your sound placement is off, it’s not resonating in the middle of the mouth as it should be for the Standard American Accent. Breathing is off (probably due to the tongue still sitting in the russian accent position blocking off the pharynx, and vowels are all over the place. Keep practicing and never give up!
I love to hear you... wow you have so many videos where do I start with if I wanna improve my English and my accent? I’m from Colombia and I’m so shy ☺️ and unsecured when i wanna speak.. its like i wanna be invisible 😪
LET US MAKE A PLEDGE TODAY TO SAVE ENGLISH...
from disintegration and fragmentation....
Now that the English has become the lingua franca,
it is extremely important to unite the English language in order to end confusion in spelling and pronunciation between,...
New Zealand English
South African English and
Indian English....etc, etc.
Nothing can be done about the accent. we all know that. But we can certainly agree on spelling and pronunciation.
let us encourage the linguistics and politicians from all over the world to get together and agree on two things:
1-one spelling based on the Oxford dictionary only.
2-one pronunciation based on the Oxford dictionary only.
we cannot go on with so much confusion forever. we need to act now.
let us get to work together to unite the language that is playing such a vital role in uniting the world.

I knew every1 in comment box would start saying "u don't have american accent".
And yeah I also think so. I guess u haven't got American accent but I appreciate how u speak. Your accent is quite clear though. Even people keep complementing about my accent. They think I've got crystal clear voice 😊
While I think it’s virtually impossible to have a perfect American accent after a certain age, you can get pretty damn close, which I think will be enough for native speakers to be impressed.
Even me, growing up with two Russian parents from Moscow. I speak with an American-(and Russian movie)-influenced accent in Russian. But I think if I worked on it, I could get close to the accent I want.
In any case, your English is very good and clear. Which makes your better than my parents. :)
I have to disagree with you about the age thing.
In the link below according to the comments, she speaks with a perfect American accent. Spoiler alert she learned as an adult. I put the link below and you can decide if she really does.
Btw!How many people speak their own language,mother tongue- grammatically correct with nice vocabulary?So stop givi g her your discouraging and pathetic advice.All have become English Language Experts/Lords.Well haters are just haters.They will be everywhere,some out of frustration,some out of nothing.But Mariana !You h
just keep going and working .You are doing g a good job.And yes,the stupid lady who brought you a cold coffee instead of hit coffee must have some hearing problem.Eveb if it's pronounced as haute despite haught--for HOT,it doesn't mean you said COLD.Both sounds different in every way.Anyway, going to another country , learning a new language with its accents is not an easy job.E very language comes with its own language and these accents gets changed from one region to another,from North to South almost in every country.Like British accent is not only one ,same goes with American accent.Whats the debate about accents in DETAIL?!!Your English is good and that's enough.People can understand you and if sone of hem are sayi g negative things most of them are also saying positive things like your accent is different a bit(Russian) or not almost (completely )American bit is clear and sone are saying it's American.So it's just a useless accent comment and debate.All the Best!👍😃
In response to the people who are debating her accent, I'll weigh in with my insights as a native speaker from California with a Ph.D. in English who taught at a top university in an English department. She has an accent that is attempting to replicate Standard Broadcast English and a California accent. It is not a seamlessly perfect accent. I hear definite Russian inflections (I live very close to a large Russian community in Los Angeles, so I'm familiar). This is present both in pronunciation and idiom: She has slight lapses like not using articles or prepositions, which are minor. I also hear the influence of her having learned her accent from a number of different sources, probably at a formative stage: Australian, British, Canadian--those are all in her speech, especially in the production of vowels. I'd say that she is a great speaker, though, and I do think people are probably angrily reacting to the word "mastered"--both in its suggestion of perfection but also in its evocation of a past action.
Hey, I was proud of you on that radio show. you spoke perfect American English; you were happy, but not giddy; and most of all, you promoted your current businesses. Congratulations, kid, you have come a long way in a short time.
Her accent sounds more Western European than Russian, so her work has definitely paid off! But as an American I can tell you that the accent is 100% non-native. Which isn't bad! She speaks perfectly clear, nearly perfect grammar, and the accent that she does have sounds pleasing rather than harsh.
«Don't think people are gonna judge you» ... Haters in the comment section -.- At least she is in the path of trying, so cut it out already with all the hate. Learning a foreign language at that level requieres tons of effort!
I'm a Chinese dude from Malaysia working as a translator at home cos I'm a polio victim. Yes, I have a disability. I went to Chinese schools (both primary and secondary/high school). I didn't begin to learn English until I was like...16. Yes, when I was in senior one. I taught English before. At the same time I was learning English by watching English-language movies (mostly American movies). To my students, I stressed the importance of speaking English with the correct accent right from the start cos we Malaysians speak English with a heavy local accent. I don't wanna do that. And I've watched tons of English-language movies and so I've learned quite a lot of American slang words too.
Honestly there are many Russian Americans and russians out there who speak ways better English than hers. Just because she is on YouTube many say "She is the best Russian English speaker." She said I used to speak with Russian accent but she still does have it. Nothing wrong with speaking with Russian Accent. Even if you have Russian accent, you will succeed in life regardless. I would watch positively if she made prank videos like vitaly :)
My students said that she spoke fast and fluently,but she didn’t have an American accent...all my students who has been learning English realized and recognized that she was the gorgeous Russian lady 🌷
What I noticed from Marina's American Accent is, she can't pornunce the word correctly , especially when it comes to letter " O" like saying the word "problem".
Also, " talk", she says " tolk".
She does Speak close to American Accent, However, You can tell that she does not speak Fullent American Accent.
